About Shôn Dale-Jones: Cracking

A completely made-up true story.

When the world goes mad, do we inevitably go mad too?

When Shôn playfully cracks an egg on his mother’s head, he has no idea real-life internet trolls will appear on his doorstep. The play takes on the battle between love and hate, asking what’s funny and where we draw the line.

Part stand-up, part theatre it's a funny, touching and thought-provoking solo performance that sews together fact and fiction into one seamless whole making us wonder what’s real, what’s not and what’s gone wrong. Aheart-warming and uplifting comic story about loving in the face of hatred.

The most generous of hosts... a mesmerising personality... a gifted storyteller... a natural comic
