How do we deal with separation, divorce and having to start over? Broken Men examines what it takes for people to pick up the pieces and begin to live again.
Drawn from lived experiences, Broken Men explores the dynamics at play when people’s relationships end. A story of finding a safe space and way forward when things fall apart. Broken Men dispels the notion that men are incapable of expressing their emotions. At a men’s group, 7 men meet to talk about their experiences dealing with divorce and coming home to an empty house. Over the course of the play, we see each man grow and change as they come to terms with their situation.
