Ben Pope (‘a total delight’ – Fest) is bored of small talk. So here it is! A show about The Big Stuff: God, death, love, the galaxy and, most of all, chocolate.
What happens after you die? What’s God up to? Is love forever? Why do people like stargazing when it’s so desperately boring?
Ben’s got some huge questions and the answers are, well, sublime.
