Sam Brady: “Things I Say” & “Kindness”

, December 8th 2017



“Nobody can be kind all of the time. But here’s the thing. No matter what your religion, or where you come from, or who you voted for – if you’re a human being, you have the capacity to do one kind thing that will change someone’s life forever.”

Sam Brady, a failed Buddhist monk, documents his struggle to be ‘good’ in his new show. Kindness investigates why it is sometimes so hard to put others before yourself. You’ll have a laugh, and you’ll leave feeling just a little happier about yourself.” The Observer


Things I Say When I Don’t Say I Love You

A new one-man play, developed by Sam Brady with Manchester’s Lowry Theatre comes to Mellor Brook

When Tommy is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, his son and grandson agree to help him fulfil his life’s dream to restore a vintage car. But amid stripped engines, rusted metal and frayed tempers, the three men discover that piecing together the past can have unexpected consequences. Award-winning writer and performer, Sam Brady, brings his new one-man play to The Lowry with characteristic warmth, humour and charm.
