Join Mark Steel in his latest stand up show – sold out at the 2015 Fringe – a surprising and enthralling story told with aplomb, as he journeys to his family roots. “It never really bothered me that I’d never met my mum. It never occurred to me I needed to meet her to ‘find out who I was‘, as it didn’t seem likely I’d discover I was someone different to who I thought I was. Could it turn out I was three stone lighter than I thought, or I spoke Italian or supported Arsenal or had a fear of Licquorice Allsorts?
But after the birth of my own son, I realised it’s quite an event to have a child, and she may well remember giving birth to me, and maybe even the adoption.” A regular on BBC One‘s ‘Have I Got News For You and Radio 4′s Newsquiz, Mark Steel’s weekly column for The Independent won him Columnist of the Year at the 2015 Press Awards. Expect a well-crafted, poignant and funny evening. Suitable for audiences aged 14+
