Written and performed by J Fergus Evans, co-produced by Contact with support from The Albany
Fergus has lived in England for almost seven years. He hasn’t been back to his hometown in five. My Heart is Hitchhiking Down Peachtree Street is a one-man show about living far away from home. It’s about the stories you tell people when they ask you when you’re from. It’s about learning that once you leave, you can’t go back.
J. Fergus Evans is a spoken word and performance artist. He was artist-in-residence for Contact’s At Home project and was selected for Apples and Snakes’ Incubate programme, a development programme for emerging spoken word artists. Fergus’s work focuses on the restaging spoken word using video, sound-scaping and sculpture.
“Gently perceptive… rich and unhurried… its questions about home, memories and distance pack an emotional punch” – Total Theatre
