MONOMATIC presents ‘The Tourist’, a new commission by Patrick Cole. We find ourselves on holiday- on a beach with Cole.  Theatrical prop like sculptures aid us on a story telling journey that flits between hilarious and tragic. Cole presents the isolation and loneliness of this space and the odd characters that inhabit it. Through monologue we explore this beach together with Cole as our masked guide pointing to the underbelly, the often out of sight and over looked.
