Ballad Of A Thin Man

'As I regained consciousness, I found myself staring into a mirror in a stranger's bathroom, to discover that I was soaking wet, covered in blood and completely naked… Yet without the faintest idea of how I had come to be in this situation…'

So begins Callum Mitchell's debut one-man show, a comical tale of love, heartbreak and a dressing gown.

From his adventures as England's Youngest Private Detective through to a near-death experience in the middle of the Cornish countryside, Ballad Of A Thin Man is equal parts hilarious, tragic, poetic and uplifting. 

Ballad Of A Thin Man toured nationally in 2013/2014.

Written & Performed by Callum Mitchell.

Music by Seamas Carey.

Photography, Film & Design by Alastair Sopp.

‘A bonkers, brave, one-man roller-coaster; somewhere between a revealing conversation on a night out and a clever, witty lecture. Interesting, funny, fresh, self-deprecating and without an inch of pretension, which is a rare and wonderful thing.’

APPLES & SNAKES.

‘All the awkward moments in life given a sense of beauty. Fearless and original.’  

ROSS SUTHERLAND, AUTHOR OF EMERGENCY WINDOW & THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU LEAVE TOWN.

‘I was absolutely delighted with Ballad Of A Thin Man! Brave, silly, moving, funny and clever... So refreshing to see a young performer, without any pretension, open up his heart. Lovely.’

DAVE MYNNE, KNEEHIGH & RABBIT THEATRE.

‘You appear to have rolled out of Wes Anderson’s brain.’
