A one-man show about love, loss, and motorways. 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. Born in London, Ben's dad then moved to Welwyn Garden City, then Breachwood Green, then Langford, and then Nottingham. Always North, and always loosely in line with the M1. Which got Ben thinking... So he decided to start in Nottingham, where he was born and grew up, and where his dad still lives, and hitchhike south down the M1, backwards in time through his father's life. This poetic multimedia ramshackle pilgrimage is the result. By turn hilarious and moving, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Family explores the merits of Travelodge while asking searching questions of identity.
