I Am Pilgrim is a funny, big-hearted, one-man show performed by Alan, and based on his own, actual experience of walking 800kms on the Camino, across northern Spain. It is a 60-minute piece of sublime comic storytelling; stories from an adventurous walk on roads built by the Romans, stories spiced with wit, tenderness, social observation, and intimacy.
Alan Lovell (Shortland St, Separation City, The Truth Game, The Clean House, Circa) is returning to Wellington for one night only at the Hannah Playhouse to perform his one-man show “I Am Pilgrim”. After a sell out season in Sydney this is a one-off opportunity to experience a funny and personal evening with Alan Lovell, one of Australia’s best-loved actors.
Alan takes you from St Jean in the foothills of the Pyrenees, navigating not just the paths of the Camino but a shaky relationship, which is facing the prospect of empty nesting and retirement. His journey ends at Finisterre, once the end of the known world – or really, is it just beginning?
Alan has an ear for the ways we speak and a knack for understanding how our inner lives affect our public selves.
One night only at the Hannah Playhouse – next Saturday! 10th June 2017.
