Playography is currently undergoing an essential rebuild, technical update and maintenance. All updates are on hold until the rebuild is complete. We are continuing to work hard in the background and are still accepting submissions which will be complete in Autumn 2023. For more information visit ITI's website.

A Dangerman


  • Playwright

    Dick Walsh 

  • Synopsis

    A Dangerman is a homage to the outsider. To that man who might talk to you for hours at a hostel. Or start a conversation with you at the library. He's a man we find annoying. He's a man for whom conversation only goes one way. We all know people like this and we all try to avoid them. That's why they are called dangermen. The danger being that you might get stuck with them. But what if what they are saying is important. They may not have the social skills to keep our attention, but what happens if you do listen. This show invites you to do just that. "A Dangerman" is your chance to experience social terror up close.
