Vesper Time

Thu 1 Oct 7.30pm | Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 15+

Stacy Makishi’s performance work Vesper Time takes a bold look at loss and mourning and her onetime wish to be a missionary. Vesper Time weaves together the undercurrents of Moby Dick and 80’s and 90’s pop culture to offer up a ‘vesper’, a secular evening prayer. Shot through with her characteristic wit, this solo show draws on Stacy’s stand-up comedy roots and her theatrical sense of the uncanny.

Vesper Time is a Chelsea Theatre and Colchester Arts Centre co-commission and supported by the National Theatre Studio. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and produced by Artsadmin.

“I admire Stacy’s raw and loving energy. It was refreshing to experience something so humorously absurd containing such powerful substance. Stacy Makishi managed to open my heart with complex laughter”
