“What good is it to gain the whole world,
But lose your soul?”
King Solomon was a man who had it all:
600 wives, gold in the billions and the power of a whole kingdom. He studied the stars, wrote poetry, built palaces, vineyards and a trading empire, contemplated wisdom...
And he was bored. Deeply bored.
The kind of bored that only a man with too much time and money on his hands can be.
None of it satisfied...
A theatre show that explores the biggest question of all:
“What’s the point?”
Features underpants, pompous manservants, self-deprecating witticisms, an existential crisis and one giant hangover...
Performed at numerous festivals and churches around Britain, with international shows in Norway, Germany and Hawaii.
Life Under The Sun is a 40 minute show, with an optional 20 minute Q&A.
It is a one man show, a black comedy with a unique mix of ancient verse offset against dark pantomime and the dry wit of stand-up. The tech and production requirements are deliberately minimal and adaptable for a venue of any space and size.
