Join writer-performer and UK poetry slam champion Ben Norris as he battles the country’s most notorious service stations and the perils of lower-league football in search of the man who became his father.
In turn hilarious and moving, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Family is a poetic multimedia ramshackle road trip that explores the relative merits of Travelodge while asking searching questions of identity.
After winning the IdeasTap Underbelly Award 2015, the show premiered to great acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and will embark on an extensive UK tour this Autumn.
