I’m Having a Wonderful Time in Baden-Baden
Jenny O’Sullivan from the current Yorkshire Squad will have her play, I’m Having a Wonderful Time in Baden-Baden, performed at Corpus Playroom in Cambridge this October.
‘It’s this sort of time you’d turn on the radio and hope for a snow day.’
Alone, abroad and in the midst of a housing crisis, it only takes one missed train for Allie to lose all sense of time.
Sustaining themself on panic-bought oranges and the sounds of the sixties, Allie dithers between frantic farce and semi-lucid lethargy in the confines of a budget hotel room, when on discovering seven blank postcards bought at a happier time, they resolve to write home – return address or not. But an awkward ‘wish you were here’ soon unravels to reveal a fragile web of uneasy relationships and invasive anxieties.
Merging the boundaries between delusion and reality, theatre and film, I’m Having a Wonderful Time in Baden-Baden offers a comical, poignant and innovative take on how we communicate when we’re on our own.
