Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental 


Brilliant and evocative. Westwood Magazine

A trip around the world via storytelling at its most fluent: award-winning theatre director, designer and raconteur Thaddeus Phillips uses minimal props and magnetic charm to recreate 17 (unforgettable) Border Crossings.

Climb aboard the communist-era type train on its journey from Prague to Belgrade or lie low in the wheel well of a transatlantic jet to Heathrow, on true life journeys recreating invasive body searches at Charles de Gaulle, run-ins with Ace of Base on Croatian ferries, KFC smuggling in Palestine and ayahuasca experiments in the Amazon in this captivating contemplation of the perplexing ins and outs of our fragile right of passage. 

The work grabs you with its intelligence, humor, sarcasm, political critique, all the way until its moving finale. El Heraldo Zaragoza, Spain

" many of these stories are both, uproariously funny and strikingly sad." Staged Magazine, Philadelphia
