    "Few works of visual arts down the centuries can boast of matching Scripture's vision of Solomon's magnificent desolation as it is rendered in Holy prose. Bathurst's startling and ambitious 'Life Under The Sun is one of them."

    - Dan Lentell, Get Your Coats On

    King Solomon was a man who had it all:

     

    700 wives, gold in the billions and the power of a whole kingdom. He studied the stars, penned poetry and proverbs, bashed out businesses, whimsied over 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…

    Life Under The Sun is a one man show based on the book of Ecclesiastes. It is a black comedy with a unique mix of ancient verse offset against dark pantomime and the dry wit of stand-up. 

     

    It has been performed at numerous festivals and churches around Britain (Bedford Fringe, Guildford Fringe), with international shows in Sweden (Gothenburg Fringe), Finland, Norway, Germany, Australia and Hawaii.

     

  •  

    Life Under The Sun is a 40 minute show, with an optional 20 minute Q&A.

     

    The tech and production requirements are deliberately minimal and adaptable for a venue of any space and size.

     

    A guide price is £350/€400 + Travel.
