It’s great to see how Netflix and Chill has grown and the important message that now comes through loud and clear about male mental health and the responsibility we all have to encourage frank and open conversation.

Alzheimer’s is such a complicated, painful experience but One Last Waltz sadly doesn’t even touch the surface of that.
A double bill of monologues from writers Dominic Grace and Lesley Ross, performed respectively by Luke Adamson and Gregory Ashton form the structure of Odd Man Out. Both plays are vastly different yet synchronise and almost meet in the middle, surprisingly well.
Odd Man Out is composed of two plays, Rabbitskin written by Dominic Grace and performed by Luke Adamson, and Diary of a Welshcake written by Lesley Ross, performed by Gregory Ashton. Break A Leg caught up with both of the actors to find out what their pieces are all about.
ODD MAN OUT, a new pairing of critically acclaimed one-man plays Rabbitskin and Diary of a Welshcake, comes to London’s Hope Theatre for a strictly limited season from 26 July to 12 August 2017. Watch our exclusive trailer here.
Created by Luke Adamson and Dan Bottomley and directed by Adamson with Phil Croft, The House of Usher takes an actor-musician approach to the material and is very much its own version of the short story, pulling in influences from elsewhere in Poe’s oeuvre and also the depths of the writers’ own imaginations.
