THE BRAVE shows bravery defined by a new generation. Eight men take to the stage to honour those people who are or once were in their lives. Combining true confessions with raw athleticism, the men in THE BRAVE find strength through family, love, loss, fear, hope, belonging and brotherhood. The Brave lays it all on the line. It’s time to man up!

The heartbreaking, funny, clever mix of true confessions and raw athleticism from the guys of Massive Company has won standing ovations already. Don’t miss these true life stories of what it takes to be a brave man today.

Their stories strip away the layers of self and put very human stories and heart out there for us to admire and respect.

Honesty, and the desire to be truly honest, permeates every aspect of the show.... both hilarious and powerfully affecting
