A Place in the Sun

Here I present two short elements of my new show A Place in the Sun; the piece in its entirety is a solo performance that explores the pleasure and pain or the highs and lows of all-inclusive holidays, particularly abroad. I have investigated holidays through the filter of the seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride. From lounging by the pool, to hedonist nights out and eating as much as you like.

In the break I will invite delegates to add stories to an interactive online map, where audiences and participants can contribute their own memories and reflections of holidays they’ve been on - type a short memory, record a hummed tune, or share a photo, and place it on the map.
