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

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.
