After scraping together his last few pounds Jarman packs a borrowed tent into an old, torn rucksack and hitches a lift north to the start of an unofficial footpath that runs from coast to coast. As he makes his way from one side of this island to the other, he wrangles with strangers, friends and versions of himself he thought he’d left behind. Journeying across the landscape they all inhabit, he navigates between the past and the present, between new ground and old mistakes, between the forgotten and the found.
Inspired by motorways and sweeping moors, this is a solo show about identity, scraping by, and learning how to let go and move on. A boisterous and captivating blend of poetry, music, story and song. All live. All lived.
