Man Shed at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022

The number of plays with sheds as their focus continues to grow with the happy news that the bitter-sweet one-man work Man Shed from Right Lines Productions by Euan Martin starring Ron Emslie will be on at the Pleasance during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe this August. Here's the spiel:

Can a man find his purpose when he grows older and all the major life events come thick and fast? Should he retire to the solitude of The Shed and escape from the world, or get out and try something new? When familiar rules no longer apply, is it too late to change the habits of a lifetime?

Inspired by the work of the Scottish Men's Sheds Association, Man Shed is a one-man theatre piece by Right Lines Productions which explores the joy of sheds, the pain of loss and the comfort of friendship.

The hour-long play has been inspired in general by the international Men’s Sheds network, but in particular the Scottish Men’s Sheds Association. It was due to appear two years ago but pandemic.

Man Shed previews on August 3 and 4, then continues until August 29 apart from August 10, 15, and 22. Tickets available from www.pleasance.co.uk/event/man-shed/performances
