Multi-award winning playwright Penelope Skinner (The Village Bike, Royal Court Theatre; Linda, Royal Court and Manhattan Theatre Club) returns to Edinburgh for the first time since 2009 with the world premiere of Angry Alan, her darkly comic and provocative new
play about masculinity in crisis.
In 2016, Penelope Skinner stumbled across the Men’s Right’s Movement and began writing Angry Alan, a story about a man being radicalised online by an extremist movement.
Angry Alan explores how any extreme political viewpoint can take root in someone’s consciousness if they are vulnerable to it and how those who propagate such extreme views aren’t necessarily all they are presenting themselves as.
