What is the show about?

The Exultant Stag is a surprising and off-beat musical comedy aiming to de-stigmatize mental health struggles and celebrate the bravery of seeking professional support and guidance. Written by local musician Jeff Stolz, this new and original play takes us through the world of Roman mythology combined with live dance and brand-new indie rock music.
