Robin Morgan: What a Man, What a Man, What a Man, What a Mighty Good Man (Say It Again Now) Laughing Horse @ The Pear Tree – Main Room * * *
But the 29-year-old Welshman is otherwise the epitome of a woke bloke, a stay-at-home dad who smugly bathes in attention heaped on him by mums at his son’s nursery.
With a sizeable chunk of self-mockery, of himself and toxic masculinity, Morgan ponders the role model he’ll be for his child; the example set by his emotional father, whom he struggles to tell that he loves; and his kinship with his best friend, Dave. A reluctant participant on a testosterone-fuelled stag do, evoking the worst traits in men, he calls out the practice of catcalling masquerading as concern, and reveals his preference before the birth was to have a daughter. If that all sounds a tad ingratiating, it is a bit.
