Keep on Walking Federico

Written and Performed by Mark Lockyer

UK Premiere

“And in that moment I realised… things had got a bit grim.”

Mark is struggling. Work, relationships, going grey.
Add to that, he can’t even get his head around Snapchat.
Then a letter arrives.

Mark has no choice but to leave…
with no idea if he’ll ever come back.

Keep on Walking Federico is a funny and moving tale of a journey across borders - a journey through the midnight of the soul…

This is the brand new play by the writer and performer of Living with the Lights On, an ATC production that has been acclaimed by critics and by audiences from Bristol to Barcelona (including two sell-out runs at the Young Vic).

“Mark Lockyer has one hell of a story and he tells it rivetingly well”
Dominic Maxwell, The Times
