We are delighted to welcome Austrian actress and writer Saskia Norman, presenting her one-woman theatre show 'Lost My Way: When life doesn't go according to plan' for the first time in London.
Lost My Way tells the story of a passionate young woman and her experiences with puberty, death, culture shock and finding herself. What starts out as a therapy session quickly turns into a journey back in time to the protagonist's life.
The audience follows Saskia as she dives into multiple characters and reveals how different events in her life, such as a parents sudden death, developing and recovering from an eating disorder, her escape into acting, the dream of moving to Hollywood and the culture shock caused by the big move have shaped her into the person she is today.
What may appear heavy at first is in fact, a funny, heartfelt story, often likened to stand-up comedy.
Join us to experience Saskia Norman's transformative journey as she discovers that the essence of a fulfilling life lies in accepting the inevitable and charting her own unique path in the world.
Lost My Way had a successful run in Austria and will soon be showcased internationally, including a performance in New York in 2024.
The play is directed by Elisabeth Halikiopoulos, a professional actress, singer and director, currently living in Austria.
This performance will be presented in English.
