What do you want to be when you grow up? As a child, Juliette wanted to be many things: ballerina, princess, Muppet. It seems our identity is tied up with our job and young Juliette seems to know her vocation but then life got in the way. Was she right as a kid?
In this true-life comedy, Juliette Burton (of award-winning duo Mace and Burton) realises her childhood ambitions. With the assistance of the everyday people she interviewed, guest appearances, an original music score and an animation here and there, Juliette reaches out to try her hand at the callings she once though were hers - artist, farmer, baker, pop star ... she's living the dream - every dream she ever had!
Join Juliette as she explores what growing up really is. What do the struggles, pressures and the feeling we don't belong really lead her to? What do they teach her about herself? What do they teach us about us all? Does growing up have to mean letting go?
This gentle storytelling comedy, full of fun ideas and nostalgia, is the debut solo show from Juliette Burton of award winning and critically acclaimed double act Mace and Burton. At Brighton Fringe 2012, Mace and Burton won an Argus Angel Award for excellence and were 'Top Nominees' for Best Comedy at The Latest Festival Awards for their show Rom Com Con.
