Press coverage

Full press release

Like most men of his age and delusion, Simon Evans dreams of striking out into The Wild and slipping the surly bonds of suburbia. He remembers, inaccurately, a youth spent drifting like a Home Counties Kerouac through the great European arterial transport thoroughfares, bonding, if not with tribal herdsmen, then at least with truck drivers and the occasional Foreign legionnaire deserter. Living on his wits (which is to say, thieving) coping Britishly with strange and confusing sexual advances, and waking up each day with the sunrise, no matter how carefully he attempted to construct some kind of rudimentary curtaining around his head before turning in for the night on some dismal piece of disregarded municipal verge or other. He remembers, and he yearns.

So what does Simon do, in an effort to reconnect with the spontaneity of his former, unburdened self? He buys a bloody dog. Idiot.

Visitor reviews

    We saw this on the 31st of July and it was excellent! I had to stand throughout the whole performance, but didn't even think about it once. The material was first rate and ran together seamlessly from beginning to end, the rising pace perfectly pitched. Simon Evans was amusing from the start and side-splitting by the end.
