Surfing the Holyland

Arts & Culture

‘Oh, we have sharks here, but they are not in the water.’ -Udi, Israeli surf teacher 
 
Heather is allergic to politics, religion and exercise. So what happens when she and her husband Zach leave Ohio for Tel Aviv? She takes up surfing. Abandoned by Zach who finds God, Heather must navigate her way through a land teeming with hipsters, zealots, hostile neighbours and one very sexy surf teacher. Join the journey of a pushover who learns to stand up for herself by learning how to stand on a surfboard.  
 
Surfing the Holyland is Erin Hunter’s debut one-woman show about surviving the mad middle East. Told as a series of surf lessons, it combines quirky storytelling, sharp observational comedy and some plucky tunes on the ukulele.

‘Erin Hunter giv[es] the best performance of the evening.’  -Lyn Gardner, The Guardian (Salsa Saved the Girls)
