42 years in the making, our new outdoor show represents Desperate Men handing over to the next generation. However, we are not going out quietly! We invite the audience to bear witness to a ceremony of transformation, as we pass the baton and investigate intergenerational relationships, imagining how the young and the old might co-exist in the future.
