Mike is a man who exists for dehumanising and often violent sexual encounters - in fact, for Mike, to be a man you have to sleep with women. So when Mike's spine is severed in a brutal stabbing his whole identity is destroyed. How can he remain a man when his impotence won't allow him to do what a man should be able to do?

Does being a man really mean being governed by your dick?

WATCH THE SPIDER is the psychological and emotional journey of a man coping with a spinal injury that leaves him paralysed, incontinent and impotent.

Writer, dancer and performer Andrew McLay draws on his own experiences as a man whose acquired disability has profoundly changed his attitude to life, to his identity as a man and to other disabled people.
