COMEDY – Surfing the Holyland
Surfing the Holyland is Erin Hunter’s debut one-woman show about the mad Middle East, surfing and survival.
“Oh, we have sharks here…but they’re not in the water.”
Heather is bored of her job, bored of Ohio, and bored of (cough) fertility problems. . . so what happens she and her husband move to exotic Tel Aviv? Well, she’s slapped with acute culture shock, a rejected visa, and a husband who finds God. So how does a wide-eyed American survive the mad Middle East? She learns to surf!
Twelve colourful characters, four comedy ukulele songs and one woman searching for her inner courage on a surfboard in this dynamic solo show exploring the immigrant experience, female empowerment and rebirth. A classic fish-out-of-water tale with sharp observational comedy, electrifying storytelling and bold physicality from ½ of award-winning comedy duo Hunt the Vigan. Don’t miss the show global audiences are calling “a virtuoso performance” “quirky and funny and gorgeous” and “the best one-person show.”
