Everybody has surely dreamed of running away from it all, to hide away from all known responsibilities and start afresh somewhere new, somewhere where they can never be found and where the grass can grow under their feet in perfect isolation. It either takes a lot of money, a lot of guts or the sheer force of will to make it happen…or you can buy a canoe, fake your own death and end up in a force ten hurricane with a picture of former Cuban President Fidel Castro looking at you with accusing stares and your children disowning you. Such is life on the open waves when you start Canoeing for Beginners.
Royal Court Liverpool are starting 2015 with a great new comedy – Canoeing For Beginners by Mike Yeaman!
The show is based around the story of a man who fakes his own death by getting into a canoe and paddling out of Crosby Marina. His wife is ready to claim the insurance money but she needs to keep her nerve as the police and their two grown up children are sticking their oar in!
The story may sound familiar but any similarities to persons living or pretending to be dead are entirely coincidental.
