Kapi-Mana News - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

Kiwi singer-song­writer Ryan Ed­wards, who re­cently re­leased his sec­ond al­bum as part of a pro­ject to raise aware­ness of men’s men­tal ill­ness, will per­form at Mana Lit­tle Theatre this Fri­day.

Hav­ing at­tended Plim­mer­ton School and lived in the area for 14 years, it is a place he knows well.

With sis­ter Janine Ed­wards, a for­mer mem­ber of the Mana Lit­tle Theatre, he is look­ing for­ward to re­con­nect­ing with the theatre at the Au­gust 19 show.

In part­ner­ship with Kapiti-based coun­sel­lor Martin Slo­man, Ed­wards has cre­ated The Whirl­wind Pro­ject, which en­cour­ages or­di­nary men to tell their ex­tra­or­di­nary sto­ries about their strug­gles with men­tal ill­ness. Mana Blues will open the con­cert. Tick­ets are $ 20 for non-MLT mem­bers and $ 15 for mem­bers. Please phone 233 8087 for book­ings. The 7.30pm event is BYO. Pro­ceeds from the gig will be used to pro­mote men’s men­tal health through The Whirl­wind Pro­ject.
