A new play tackling the stigma around mental health in Rugby on and off the pitch

A new play ‘Bones’ brings together the worlds of rugby and theatre to tackle the stigma surrounding mental health, toxic masculinity and gender stereotypes.

Through the story of a rugby player on the brink of a professional career, but struggling in a way he can’t seem to fix, the show examines the toll pressure can take on mental health and questions why it isn’t treated with the same concern as a physical injury, when the effects can be just as serious.

Simon spoke to the playwright and director to find out more about the plays on at the Park Theatre in Finsbury Park from July 5 until July 22
