Vesper Time

Description Details

‘Stacy Makishi managed to open my heart with complex laughter’ Total Theatre

Whatcha gonna do with your 'one wild and precious life...?' - Mary Oliver

Vesper Time offers an ‘evening prayer’, a high-spirited and playful reflection on ageing and on acting before it is too late.

Subverting fragments of Hollywood blockbusters with the existential undercurrents of Moby Dick, Makishi draws on her former training as a missionary and stand-up comic in this subversive sermon about loss and living life to the full.
