Once a smart kid in the classroom, Ryan is trapped in a life he doesn’t want to lead. He feels increasingly suffocated in a world obsessed by self-image and measures his self-worth in muscle mass.
Ryan spends every day in the gym, but what began as fitness-based self-improvement has has transformed into dangerous self-destruction.
A raw, emotional and illuminating piece of theatre, BRAWN explores the powerful desire for physical perfection, and the silent, anxious struggles of the men who experience it today.
