Washed Up – FREE to view

Washed Up, Rough Glory Films’ award winning short film about Desperate Men is FREE to watch! This bleakly comic study takes an unflinching look at the combustible tension that drives Desperate Men to keep making vital street theatre when some days they are barely on speaking terms. Seeing how we have lasted 25 years without killing one another may inspire people to keep going through these bleak times. Click here to watch for free.


“Thought provoking, funny and poignant look at what happens next when performers decide to move on after 4 decades of work”

42 years in the making, Desperate Men hands the reins over to the next generation. However, we’re not going out quietly! Bear witness to a ceremony of transformation, as we pass the baton and imagine how the generations might co-exist in future. Click here for more info and to watch the full film!
