Mark Steel : Who Do I Think I Am?

Event Date: 
20/03/2016 - 8:00pm
Venue: 
Exeter Corn Exchange, Exeter

It never really bothered me that I'd never met my mum.

It never occurred to me I needed to meet her to 'find out who I was', as it didn't seem likely I'd discover I was someone different to who I thought I was. Could it turn out I was three stone lighter than I thought, or I spoke Italian or supported Arsenal or had a fear of Liquorice Allsorts?
But after the birth of my own son, I realised it's quite an event to have a child, and she may well remember giving birth to me, and maybe even the adoption.

Venue: 
The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter

Birth & Death & Here & Now is about exactly those things; The moment of birth, the moment of death and the moment that is happening right now. The show explores each moment with a joyful mix of childish freedom and the hindsight of life experience, drawing on the real feelings and experiences of Adam and the people present in the room with him.

We meet ourselves in baby form, we are confronted by one of the many possible manifestations of death and we are thrown into the NOW with Adam as he seeks to ride the moment that we are all living together.
