WHO: Stephen Bathurst
ROLE IN THE PRODUCTION: Everything…
WHAT: “Life Under The Sun is a one man show based on the book of Ecclesiastes. It is a black comedy with a unique mix of ancient verse offset against dark pantomime and the dry wit of stand-up. Features underpants, pompous man-servants, self-deprecating witticisms, an existential crisis and one giant hangover…”

Is this your first time to Bedfringe?
I came here back in 2016 with a two-man show based on the story of Job. Two vivid memories of said show are:
1) Wearing skinny jeans so tight I could barely move in them.
2) Having a bin full of rotting banana and orange peel dumped over my head.
I was the director so only have myself to blame for this… It was a very receptive audience. We had a good Q&A afterwards.
What are the big things you’ve learned since 2021 and have you absorbed any of the lessons yet?
There’s been much travel. I am British but live in Finland, recently went to visit an old friend in France and spent a good chunk of winter in Africa.
Recent events have encouraged me to read a lot into geopolitics and financial systems, why things are the way they are.
Tell us about your show.
We all look up at the stars and ponder the big questions of life, of purpose and belonging This is true of every human, no matter the race or culture. I don’t like being preached at. I like questions and opinions and doubt. I like laughing at the nonsense of life and thrashing out the meaning of things over a pint in the pub.
‘Life Under The Sun’. A show for those seeking, even if they don’t know what…
What should your audience see at Bedfringe after they’ve seen your show?
As a 90s Boy myself, Phil Green’s show of the same name looks a good shout.
