Man of the Year
A long history of violence.

In 1939 Time magazine named Adolf Hitler 'Man of the Year ‘ because he was the most influential person of that year…"for better or worse”.

5pound theatre are proud to be premiering Man of the Year, a new one man show at the 2016 Melbourne Fringe Festival. The show will run at the Fringe Hub from the 16th – 23rd September and will feature 5pound theatre’s Artistic Director Jason Cavanagh. The piece will be directed by Tim Wotherspoon.

Man of the Year is a look at human nature, and our propensity for violence. It’s a snap shot of some of history’s great speeches, and some of the worlds best speakers. What soon becomes clear is that all these great moments in time are intractably linked to mankind’s long violent struggle. A perpetual cycle that every now and again spins out of control. It’s not a question of if it will happen again, but rather when.

It could be next week, next year, or ten years from now. It could be tonight. Man of the Year starts as a curatorial look at some of the world changing speeches throughout history. Martin Luther King ‘had a dream’, Adolf Hitler insisted ‘It is not truth that matters, but victory’, Winston Churchill vowed to ‘fight them on the beaches’, Julia Gillard ‘will not take lessons in misogyny from that man’ and Stan Grant says ‘ we are better than this’. 

But all the while a clock is ticking on the wall and there is something lurking beneath the surface. A bead of sweat falls across the speaker’s brow as he looks around the room. Who is he? What are his true intentions? How will this end?

Jason has been in over 40 different productions in his 18 years of treading the boards but Man of the Year sees him embarking on a new frontier- his first one man show. I'm not entirely sure what is going to happen on that stage. At times it's like the material is creating me instead of the other way around. It is thrilling, scary and a little bit crazy, but then that’s what we’re going for. – Jason
With this show we are exploring the idea of influence. Our relationship with violence and the lengths people go to to change the world. The things we do...for better or worse.
