Jordan Carling

“Are you okay? Sorry. Silly question. Of course you’re okay. You’re the man!”

It’s Not The Character’s Problem. is a moving piece of autobiographical storytelling that challenges preconceived notions of masculinity by exploring the universal themes of death and grief.

No gimmicks. Just a table, a chair, a mic and a story. It’s not an easy one to tell and it might not be an easy one to hear, but the invitation is open and Jordan wants to talk.

So, come and join the conversation.

Someone has to talk about it.

For Kelvin.

Audience feedback for It's Not The Character's Problem.:

“I loved the simplicity. It was so interesting and a very unique and personal story that didn't need any gimmicks.”

“A heart-breaking personal story that is nevertheless universally poignant, funny, honest and engaging.”

“I was gripped by the storytelling and the piece had a real emotional impact. Jordan Carling takes you on a real journey through one of humanity's most difficult experiences. 100% recommend!”

“I was apprehensive before watching the work, simply because I knew it tackled themes of death and loss; something that I, much like the rest of society, try to avoid. Jordan however manages to pull you so far into his own personal experience of loss, that not only do you cling on to every word he says, you become fully invested in his story. A truly honest, raw, moving and inspirational story that I am so grateful was shared with me.”
