The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Family

★★★★ A modern pilgrimage - a complex emotional ride The Stage


"Everyone’s dad exists as a kind of statue, frozen in a certain pose. Mine is wearing his cream and black mac, standing in the rain watching football or cross country…it doesn't matter which: it was muddy, and he was there.”

Join writer-performer and UK poetry slam champion Ben Norris as he battles the country’s most notorious service stations and the perils of lower-league football in search of the man who became his father.

In turn hilarious and moving, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Family is a poetic multimedia ramshackle road trip that asks searching questions of identity. Winner of the IdeasTap Underbelly Award 2015.
