If You Love Me This Might Hurt is an uncomfortable and funny show about rage, suicide and so-called self-care. In his debut solo show Matty explores mental health, what it is to grow up queer and working class around men and the trauma they inflict and the magic of having a brilliant Nan. Matty May is a working-class queer artistand full time Barking babe. Unashamedly common as muck,sometimes funny and often anxious. His work is honest, vulnerable and a little uncomfortable. Matty isthe Associate Director of Scottee & Friends and lead artist on ‘The Queer Wall’, ‘Bleeps & Bloops’ and ‘Be& Do’. This performance contains references to themes of depression and suicide.
