UK: A HIT-Copenhagen production and a critically acclaimed success, The Shy Manifesto originally premiered in 2020 and due to demand is now being performed under CPH STAGE – INTERNATIONAL DAYS. This hilarious and moving dramatic comedy is in English, with a tour de force performance by British actor Daniel Ash. This is his debut lead solo role in Copenhagen, after drama training in the UK and now Denmark, where he is currently based. The Shy Manifesto is a tender, bitter-sweet coming-of-age dark comedy from 2019, about growing up shy and along with the pressures and double-edged sword of the social media age. 17-year old bookworm Callum, stuck in Bournemouth, is surrounded in life by overconfident people. He has pretty much only his own room for company and decides to face his own demons after the utter chaos of his drunken escapades the night before. This play is as hilarious as it is poignant. Through the digital universe of his vlog, Callum delivers a potent manifesto, which reveals his intimate thoughts about sexuality, society, humiliation, self loathing, and ultimately his quest for acceptance.
