Look at me. My edges are real. I start where the waves stop. I am all that is not the sea.
After scraping together his last few pounds and hitching a lift up north, David sets out along the well-worn path that leads from one side of the country to the other. As he stumbles over the brutal curves of a Britain that doesn’t seem to know where on earth it’s heading anymore, he soon encounters versions of himself he thought he’d left behind and struggles to make his way across the broken fragments of the island he calls home. It turns out that making progress isn’t always as straightforward as it seems.
An arresting, post-brexit medley of spoken word, storytelling and live music.
