Meet Mr. Toxic, the man we all know and hate. He’s been there to catcall, tell you to smile more, or make you feel bad for wearing pink and knowing all the words to Shake it Off by Taylor Swift.
All is well for Mr. Toxic until one day, karma spikes his drink. From there his life is changed as his body shifts before his very eyes. He develops boobs, a booty, and gets his first period. With this, he is forced to adapt. Can he survive life as a woman in the toxic world he had a hand in creating?
A New Man is a physical comedy exploring toxic masculinity as a clown. It is an original and hilarious solo that explores the depths of gender constructs and ideals. It is a must see for anyone who has encountered toxic masculinity in their life.
