Laugh and cry at the ridiculousness of it all, as our young hero goes in search of understanding what it means to be leaving boyhood behind to become a man.
Through physical theatre, pantomime and clown, and playing with the tragic themes of a patriarchal society, hidden grief, roots of toxic behavior, shame, initiation and male mentorship JIMMY’s journey invites to dismantle and reflect. Come and join him setting foot on complex grounds and attempting to figure things out. Let’s laugh, cry, be confused and amused in this both intimate and comically serious show.

“JIMMY is a tour de force of physicality. In his ground-breaking one-man show, Richard Kimberley dissects modern masculinity with his astute mastery of posture, movement, and character. Rarely does one witness such a formidable, candid display of a single person’s vulnerability on stage. Do not miss out on this extraordinary theatrical feat.” – Peter Graff, Artistic Director, American Improv, Vienna, Austria
