ABOUT THE SHOW

A Day in the Desert tell the story of two unlikely friends. Fiona, is an upright, unadventurous citizen who is afraid to set foot beyond her front door. On this day, Andromeda, her extroverted adventurous friend persuades Fiona to join her on an adventure.  In no time they are up in an airplane, headed for the Kalahari Desert in Africa. 

Like many classics, for example ‘The Little Prince’ or the stories of Dr Seuss, these stories have a poetic depth that disarm its audience to be able look at serious issues - issues of loneliness, of disassociation, of love and loss - without feeling morally judged.
