A heart-warming, soul-searching, occasionally jaw-dropping new show from Mark Lockyer (Living with the Lights On).
“That place we all go to ... when we lay our heads on the pillow at night and face ourselves. The truth – if we dare to look.”
One day, Mark receives a curious letter. A letter that takes him to a sleepy Spanish town along a desolate coast. He doesn’t speak the language and he knows no one … but he’s not here for a holiday. He’s here to grapple with the past.
Instead he finds himself encountering a series of memorable people, Pepe the café owner, the Miss World fanatic Daamon, Dr Bueno the doctor who has more on his mind than medicine, and, of course, the mysterious, flamenco-dancing Ramona. These people will change Mark’s life forever, and help him to find the answers to the questions he was always afraid to ask ...
Mark Lockyer is an extraordinary writer/performer whose hit show Living with the Lights On has toured from Bristol to Barcelona, including two sell-out runs at the Young Vic. Keep on Walking Federico is his new show, full of the same compelling mix of virtuosity, heart and humour.
★★★★★ A production to be treasured ... deeply sensitive - shines like a jewel in a confused world— Cormac Richards, Reviews Gate
★★★★ Layers of mystery and levity … a complex interplay [in which] Lockyer plays a town-full of eccentrics with chameleon-like dexterity— Neil Cooper, The Herald
