More Information on When We Were Brothers

LADS DON’T CRY. BUT WHAT IF YOU HAVE TO? WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE GOING TO EXPLODE. WHEN EVERYTHING’S CLOSING IN. AND YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW IF YOU CAN STAND IT ANYMORE. WHAT THEN?

Danny and Tommo have been friends since they were 8 years old. Played, fought, had each other’s backs. Like brothers. Now they’re grown up; Danny’s down in that London and Tommo is off work and back at his old bedroom. But Tommo’s mum, Julie, is really worried about him, and Danny may be the only one who can help…

When We Were Brothers is a one-hour new play by Ben Tagoe (Coronation Street, Lucky Man) about being a man, mental health, and friendship. It takes place in a bar, where you can sit and enjoy a drink while watching the show.
