Off the Wall - The Journey of a Play

Off the Wall is the chronicle of a unique theatrical journey which saw six Cloud Nine actors and playwright Peter Mortimer striding the width of England to perform their specially commissioned play in remote rural areas.

The actors, like medieval troubadours, walked through rugged terrain along the length of Hadrian’s Wall, arriving each evening at remote rural venues for their performance.

The book is a fascinating insight into the Roman Wall, the contrasting fortunes and dymnamics of such an unusual journey, plus a full transcript of the play, a fast paced satire whose main subject is Hadrian’s Wall itself – and one entrepreneur’s attempts to turn it into the world’s longest theme park.
