The Long Way Home Tickets

Every year, for the last 30 years an absent father has sent his son an empty box for his birthday.

This year, following his absent father’s death, the son decides to find out why.

Part autobiography, part exaggeration for comic and dramatic effect.

The Long Way Home is a glorious, fantastical and absurd quest to come to terms with an absent father’s inheritance.

CAST + CREATIVE TEAM

A show devised by Ben Phillips in collaboration with Mark Loudon and John Wright

PRESS + REVIEWS

‘This performance, borne from personal experience, brought audiences face to face with a wonderful, complex, emotionally charged and highly affecting performance experience and as a venue we’re privileged to be part of that’ Cathy Butterworth, Artistic Director, Arts Centre, Ormskirk

‘The show is creative, bizarre and very funny whilst being incredibly simple. Ben Phillips is a truly fantastic performer. The audience is in the palm of his hands from the off…. It was a thoroughly enjoyable piece of theatre.’ North West End
