A Play by Hannah Banks & Uther Dean

Everything is Surrounded by Water is a thing where I, Uther Dean, tell you why I sold my soul when I was seven and how I got it back. I’m really proud of it and I want as many people as possible to see it at the same time as violently insisting that it need to be as intimate as possible.

Which is, for the first season, why I came to you. In the New Zealand Fringe Festival 2014, I went to people’s places and did it for them there for koha. People seemed to really like it (and if you really want me to come to yours and do it, shoot us an email and we’ll see if we can swing that) so now it’s moving into actual proper theatres that can hold more than ten people.

I wrote it with my friend Hannah Banks. She also directed it. She is really cool. She, I and our friend Paul have a theatre company called My Accomplice which is producing this show. We’ve been nominated for and won a bunch of awards if that kind of thing matters to you. So, yeah, people seem to like our stuff. Which makes me think that you will like this.

If you have any questions or enquires or whatever email me at everythingissurroundedbywater@gmail.com.

It may be of interest to you that a section of this show had an early workshop showing as part of Six Little Plays for Christchurch in 2011 at BATS.
