Vesper Time

Stacy Makishi  

Vesper Time tackles themes of paternal absence, poignant memories and mourning through a heart-warming combination of soul searching, humour and absurd home truths. 

Touching upon undercurrents and contrasts of death and forgiveness, Stacy references Moby Dick whilst utilising MTV pop songs as hymn books, delivering her signature take on some favourite Hollywood blockbusters. With more than a nod to her stand-up comedy roots, Vesper Time offers up a subversive sermon, delivered with characteristic quirkiness and a ‘vesper' - a secular evening prayer. 

Vesper Time was developed with the support of the National Theatre Studio and commissioned by Chelsea Theatre and Colchester Arts Centre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and produced by Artsadmin.

"The show moved me to tears, laughter and some serious reflection"    
Dean Atta

"Genuinely moving" 
– A Younger Theatre

"It was refreshing to experience something so humorously absurd containing such powerful substance. Stacy Makishi managed to open my heart with complex laughter." 
– Total Theatre
