An enticing strip-tease of revelations, this poignant, funny solo performance exposes the unplanned turns, blind alleys and devastating losses of one man's struggle to traverse the toll road of life. And his boxes.
Combining childlike wonder, adult cynicism, and Shakespearean gravitas in his impressively compelling story, master storyteller Dennis Elkins poses increasingly difficult questions about our relationship with things. Why do we cling so tightly? Why is our identity so bound up in our possessions? Are we throwing away our loved ones with their things? Mr Dennis tackles these questions and more with heartwarming stories told by a man so naturally inclined to tell them that you’ll be on the edge of your seat captivated by tales of drowning in martini glasses and snack plates.
