Strangers & Exiles
“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 man-servants, self-deprecating witticisms, an existential crisis and one giant hangover…
Performed at numerous festivals and churches around Britain, with international shows in Norway, Germany, Australia and Hawaii.
Life Under The Sun is a 40 minute show, with an optional 20 minute Q&A.
It is a one man show based on the book of Ecclesiastes; 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.
A guide price is £320/€370 + Travel.
I am open to negotiation.
