Man Overboard (aka Certified Male)
Man Overboard (also known as Certified Male) is a play comprising four actors and a piano player. It is the story of four affluent City consultants who visit a distant resort in order to discuss their company’s impending restructuring.
Alex, Howard, McBride and Jarrad leave the safety of their comfortable office and set off to a mystery destination where all manner of surprises await. The boss, Jarrad, has told them that the company will be downsized, the underlying implication being that someone will not be returning to work on Monday.
This is an accessible, contemporary work that explores, in an emotive, yet very comical way, themes of manhood, mortality, friendship, the ‘absent father’, political correctness and long-term relationships. The themes, story and characters resonate as much now as they did back when the play was written in 1999. In fact, in light of the recent #MeToo” campaign, the issues that men and women have to navigate today have become more relevant than ever.
Certified Male has had productions in several countries including South Africa, Ireland, Sweden, Iceland, UK, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand.
