One part whiskey plus one part hard cider equals a catastrophic routine and the modern man on the verge of extinction.

Misfire is a blistering exposé of toxic masculinity, influence and staggeringly bad comedy. Old Sole Theatre Company presents a new short play by James Neale; an ‘anti-stand up’ exploring fragile masculinity on a post-Weinstein stage.

This pint-sized play directly challenges its audience on preconceptions of gender, intimacy and power in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
