Fragility of Man

After a total sell out at Edinburgh Fringe and a 150+ date tour, David William Bryan (as seen in 'In Loyal Company' & 'Trashed') returns to Vault Festival for the third consecutive year. This tour de force drama follows a twelve-year-old homeless fighter through the Thatcher years and and the rise of the ecstasy era. A poetically grimy punch in the face exploring the ultimate, lifelong battle with the penal system.

Are we already sabotaged by our genes to repeat the mistakes of the generations before us? Or do we have the power to break the tragic cycle?
