17 year old Callum is proud to be shy and he thinks you should be too, because what this noisy, crazy world needs is a bit more self-restraint. The Shy Manifesto is bittersweet comedy drama about a boy who is fed up of being told to come out of his shell. Starring Theo Ancient (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and written by Michael Ross ("fun, sparky and full of ideas”- The Stage on Ross' They Won’t Kill You).

Michael studied scriptwriting at Bournemouth University and playwriting with the Royal Court's Young Writers Programme. His previous plays include Happy To Help (Park Theatre) published by Bloomsbury Methuen Drama and shortlisted for the Liverpool Hope Playwriting Prize, and praised by critics as 'a funny witty take on the bizarre world of indentured corporate servitude' (Exeunt)
'sharply written' (Aleks Sierz) 'What a delight it is to see a new comedy on the London stage, moreover set in England with plenty to say about the way we live now' (Broadway World).
In 2017, his play Eyes Full Of Pornography was selected for the Samuel French Off-Off
Broadway Festival in New York. In 2018, his play Work Makes You Free was performed
to critical acclaim at the VAULT Festival;
'Ross's virtuoso script... an unexpected highlight of the VAULT this year' (Fringe Guru)
'Promising new writing about work and the values weattach to it' (The Stage)
'The writing is sharp and imaginative... in one moving scene, tears quietly rolled down the face of the man sitting next to me.' (British Theatre Guide)
