"Oh, we have sharks here... but they're not  in the water."                                                           -Udi, Israeli surf teacher   

Heather is bored of her job, bored of Ohio, and bored of (cough) fertility problems. . . so what happens she and her husband move to exotic Tel Aviv?  Well, the Israeli "balagan"* slaps Heather with acute culture shock, a rejected visa, and a husband who finds God. So how does a clueless American survive the mad Middle East? She learns to surf! 

 

Twelve colourful characters, four comedy ukulele songs and one woman searching for her inner  chutzpah** on a surfboard in this dynamic solo show exploring the immigrant experience, female empowerment and rebirth. A classic fish-out-of-water tale with sharp observational comedy, electrifying storytelling and bold physicality from ½ of award-winning comedy duo Hunt the Vigan. Told as a series of surf lessons that playfully blurs the boundaries between comedy, musical and drama. Don't miss the show global audiences are raving about!

 

Surfing the Holyland is a work of absolute fiction. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, or actual events is purely coincidental...It is 100% fiction....95%…At least 90. Okay, 70. 70% fiction.

  

Directed by Adam Lenson who specialises in new and experimental musical theatre with credits from The Old Vic, Public Theatre (New York), Duke of York’s and St James Theatre.
