The Golden Path (Vanessa Hammick)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2019

Not quite a slice of life, more like the complete pie! Vanessa Hammick’s engaging show loosely explores her relationship with her father but digresses wildly, to include moments when she condoled with an audience member about their obscure degree, and enjoyed spending time conversing with the youngest member of audience, a 12-year-old boy from the States. Hammick’s material is personal and touching, which makes the show poignant without being saccharine, and she goes beyond just talking about her relationship with her father, relating some insights into her own life as well. ‘The Golden Path’ is a fulfilling and well-rounded show by a talented performer – I look forward to seeing more of her.

Just the Tonic at The Caves, until 25 Aug.
