  • Written and Performed by: Dylan Cole

Guy is an avid jigsaw puzzler who has spent his entire life craving solitude. Guy has deliberately distanced himself from social connections, prioritizing his own company over that of others. However, as he nears the age of 40, he begins to yearn for companionship and realizes the significance of human connection.

A new solo theatre show from writer / performer Dylan Cole (Blank Tiles, It All Sparks Joy, Case Numbers) explores the societal expectations surrounding masculinity and the impact they can have on men's ability to forge deep, authentic relationships.
