Tunde's thirtieth birthday is fast approaching. So he's started therapy because he hasn't been able to get to the gym for weeks, and a recent one-night stand ended in tears – his.

Interrogating the challenge of opening up and accepting our own vulnerabilities, Ifeyinwa Frederick's Sessions is a raw, funny, bittersweet deep-dive into the complexities of masculinity, depression and therapy. It was first produced in 2021 on tour of the UK, before a run at Soho Theatre, London, co-produced by Paines Plough and Soho, and directed by Philip Morris.


Extra Content: Ifeyinwa Frederick on why she wrote her play about black men in therapy, in an article for the Evening Standard (11 November 2021).

'30 just matters, innit. Like there's no doubt you're a proper adult then. Like 25 to 29 is just training, but 30, it's real.'

Press Quotes

Guardian

'A timely exploration of mental health challenges in black men [that] serves as an important reminder to check in with those around us'
