"When one man, for whatever reason, has the opportunity to lead an extraordinary life, he has no right to keep it to himself."
Neck Or Nothing is the story of Jens, a self taught inventor, who sets out to create one of the most important technological advancements in history. A giant suit to fight bears. Fledgling Theatre's latest show explores themes of PTSD, and mental health. It is inspired by the cult documentary ?Project Grizzly' (1998).
