Play, Pasty, Pint: Black Pill and Paternity

Wed 2 Oct
- Sat 5 Oct
Doors: 12.30Show: 13.00

Moveable Type Theatre Company are excited to collaborate with the Barbican Theatre on Play,
Pint and Pasty offering a season of new plays.
Our first of the season is Black Pill and Paternity by Marika Mckennell, an exploration of the
seductive power of incel culture, its violence and misogyny, and a possible way out.
When two young men meet online, they find themselves hounded by their histories and tied
together by a single tragic event. As they grapple with a culture that tells them to hate and
resent, can they find redemption in their connection to each other?
