Drama - Monster by Tony Pitts
An intense drama featuring Neil Maskell, Shaun Dooley and Richard Hawley. Monster is an exploration of male anger, how men become victims of victims, and how the baton is passed from man to boy.
There's an unspoken code that says lives must not be lived to the limit of their possibilities, but rather corralled into a narrow, numb, wilfully limited definition of acceptable male behaviour.
Sounds are guttural, adrenalin fuelled. We hear tension building, boys breathing, working hard to fulfil expectations of masculinity - and a sense of release fills us as we move through the story.
