Scottee grew up around strong, brave and violent men and boys. BRAVADO is his memoir of working class masculinity from 1991 to 1999 as seen by a sheep in wolves clothing. It explores the graphic nature of maleness and the extent it will go to succeed. Blood, spit and tears are set against the drunken backdrop of aggressive sensitivity and Oasis songs.

Bravado is an astonishing show. It’s an open wound that bleeds painful truths ...an unsparing dissection of male identity – of its tribalism, insecurity and oppression
★★★★ The Stage
Scottee’s Bravado is deeply moving and strikingly intelligent theatre-making – and one that might well be Scottee’s most impressive feat.
