Edwards on theatre stage
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.
