Last Man In
JACK'S ASHES - COMING SOON
"163 to win. We’ve got this lads…"
Former professional cricketer Jack gives his team talk, but wickets fall like a ticking time bomb and the anecdotes from the ashes of his career prove less than inspirational…
As he pads up to be the last man in and go out save the day, ‘Jack's Ashes’ offers a humorous insight into the mental frailties that can cloud a professional sportsman’s mind and the distractions that can lead to ruin.
Developed in consultation with professional sports bodies and mental health charities, ‘Jack's Ashes’ is designed to reduce stigma and promote conversation about mental fitness. Performances can be followed by a fire circle talk back led by a professional counsellor.
