This Will End Badly

Rob Hayes

PaperBack (12 Jan 2016)

“You can’t even shit… You’re being outskilled by the most primitive life forms on Earth”

Repressed rage; entrenched isolation; compacted bowels. Staring deep into the destructive ego of the modern man, Rob Hayes masterfully dissects the world of relationships, defecating and surviving in this testosterone-triggered tragi-comedy. Collaborating with critically acclaimed director Clive Judd, Hayes injects dark humour, candid observation and arresting imagery to confront our existing understanding of masculinity at blistering pace.

'Male mental health is high on the theatrical agenda at the moment and This Will End Badly is a strong addition to the field. The writing is often impressive... when it’s good, it’s very good. Very nasty, too, and quite exhausting to watch.' Lyn Gardner, Guardian

“This was perhaps the best show I’ve seen this year… I urge you to see it.” Observer ★★★★★

“Ben Whybrow is heartrending, callous and funny by turns. It’s as unsettling and brilliant a performance as you’re likely to see this year.” Fest Magazine ★★★★

“An intense, exhausting performance complements this diagnosis of emotional obsession in the modern male” The Stage ★★★★
