£10 Adult Standard

Vicki and Pat in Fuerteventura is a two-woman comedy play in one act.  Vicki and Pat meet after choosing adjacent sun loungers on an all-inclusive holiday in Fuerteventura.  The pair fill us in on their adventures through their dialogue, such as the mysterious ‘Happy Hour’ they went to the night before which has left them the worse for wear, the aerobics class they were persuaded to join by the Activities Rep which ends in disaster and the entire gateau that Pat has stolen from the all-inclusive buffet.  As she repeatedly insists, if it’s all-inclusive, it’s not stealing.

This is the debut play from Duck Decanter Productions after Chivers, Henley and McCourt met in 2015 touring the country by narrowboat with Mikron Theatre Company.  In 2017, Ellen went on holiday to Fuerteventura and after witnessing some interesting conversations and antics around the pool, the idea for a play about two women chatting on sunloungers came about.

After witnessing some interesting conversations and antics around the pool, the idea for a play about two women chatting on sun loungers came about. Ellen trained at Arts Educational Schools London.
