HIT Cph Lab Classes
Ny tekst kommer her – A HIT Cph production. By Michael Ross. On stage: Daniel Ash.
Directed by Jeremy M. Thomas
Ny tekst kommer her – “Daniel Niel Ash er alene på scenen i små 90 minutter, men sjældent har man set en mere fornøjelig monolog end denne… Ingen vil gå uberørt hjem efter Daniel Niel Ashs præstation.”
(CphCulture, October 2020)
“Jeremy M. Thomas har iscenesat med masser af humor og ømhed… Daniel Neil Ash er meget troværdig som den rastløse og sky Callum, og han har en vidunderlig indlevelse i de historier han fortæller.”
(/Review: XQ28, Oct 2020)
This bitter-sweet tender comedy was a sell out for HIT in 2020, now is your chance to follow on stage one 17-year-old, and his digital universe, a potent manifesto and brilliant one-man play, which reveals Callum’s intimate thoughts about sexuality, society and his quest for acceptance.

HIT’s participation in CPH STAGE as HIT hits the Stage is graciously supported by the Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond.
The Shy Manifesto by Michael Ross, along with Harry Clarke by David Cale, are powerful, revealing and compelling monologues and a tour de force for any actor. Both one-man plays are being performed as part of HIT’s season focusing this year on LGBTQ+ oriented plays, leading up to HIT’s participation with dramatic works on stage during Worldpride 2021, which will be held in Copenhagen.
THE SHY MANIFESTO is one of five HIT plays this spring being performed under CPH STAGE as a part of HIT’s international festival – HIT hits the Stage.
