A melancholy travel show which takes you somewhere else...
Carrie Rhys-Davis, Resident responder to Mayfest
One of the most exciting things about Marshman's work is his ability to pick a seemingly small subject and peel back the layers to expose something unexpectedly profound.
shows TOURING IN 2017:
a place in the sun
Pull up a sun-lounger and enjoy your place in the sun. This all-inclusive holiday experience offers the complete package of wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony, around the glorious pool.
Tom Marshman went on a holiday and viewed it through the filter of the seven deadly sins. From lounging by the pool, to hedonistic nights out and all-you-can-eat buffets, in his quest for ‘a place in the sun’ he discovered a world riddled with prejudice and xenophobia. A Place in the Sun explores the pleasure and pain, the highs and lows of all-inclusive holidays.
You can share your stories and experiences of holidays on Tom’s interactive online platform: www.tommarshman.com/aplaceinthesun/
A Place in the Sun is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
The show premiered at Mayfest 2015 and has toured to Tom Thumb Theatre, Margate and b-side Festival, 2016. More dates coming soon.
