Whats On

Get Yourself Together by Josh Coates

Thursday, 17 November 2016 - 8:00pm
 
Is it my fault I’m like this? 
Is it my fault I’m angry? 
…is it?
 
One Christmas, Josh was diagnosed with depression and then hit by a car. The following year he was on Job Seekers whilst attempting to balance his sanity and gift buying. This is a show about being ill and being fit for work. This is a show about the DWP and being from Bolton. This is a show that explores the thin line between mental health as a clinical and a political issue.
 
Part stand up, part spoken word and part teenager in his room pretending he’s in a punk band, Get Yourself Together is new show from Royal Exchange supported artist, Josh Coates.
 

About the artist

Josh Coates is a theatre maker from the grey side of Bolton. He makes work that interrogates the role of the story teller in contemporary society. He has previously worked with Belarus Free Theatre, Blast Theory and Dan Bye and is a supported artist at the Royal Exchange.
