    STARTLING AND AMBITIOUS 

    - Get Your Coats On

  • KING SOLOMON 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…

  • INFO

     

    Life Under The Sun - Part 1 is a one man show based on the book of Ecclesiastes.

     

    Well described as Blackadder meets the Bible, imagine King Charles delivering a royal speech, all the pomp and majesty, the trumpets and fanfare, but he's in a stand-up comedy club, in his pants, with a massive hangover...

     

    50 minute show with optional 10-20 minute Q&A.

     

    Minimal tech requirements, adaptable for a venue of any size.

     

    Recommended age 14+, mature themes, mild language and underpants.

     

    Show is available in either English or Finnish language versions.

     

    Guide price of £400/€450 + Travel. I am open to negotiation.

     

    Previous theatre and church performances include Britain (Buxton Fringe, Bedford Fringe, Guildford Fringe), Sweden (Gothenburg Fringe), Finland (OFF Tampere), Norway, Germany, Australia and Canada.

    "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."
