All Roads Lead to Rome
Friday 2 August – Sunday 25 August (not 5, 12, 19 August), 7.30pm
Chris has lovingly repaired his family Triumph Herald Estate so that he can drive it from his childhood home in Braintree to Rome via Turin where this quintessentially English car was designed.
Part investigation into his father’s time as a Polish soldier in the Italian Campaign and part muse on consumerism, All Roads Lead to Rome brings together car mechanics, a road trip, dictators and the fetishisation of possessions in a solo performance using old photos, new film and surprising mechanical objects.
A simple, effective and intellectual piece, told with warmth and a twinkle.
