Chris Hogg is witty, musical and pro-active. He lives in Cheam and travels to Leatherhead to attend workshops with Freewheelers Theatre & Media Company. Or at least that’s the idea.
In reality, staff at Cheam disappear at midday leaving no-one to manage Chris’s travel. He uses a power wheelchair and without staff is left stranded. His activities are therefore cut short or cut altogether.
He plans to produce a satire on Southern Rail, their strikes and cynicism, but when life is stranger than fiction, you can be left struggling. The Media Group at Freewheelers has explored “W1A”, Monty Python and the whole history of absurdist comedy for a style that suits the material. First of all though, Chris has to find a way of travelling to Leatherhead.
