Following his sell-out nationwide show The Manifesto, award-winning comedian and activist Mark Thomas returns with his brand new show: Extreme Rambling (Walking The Wall). Never one to take the easy option, Mark decided to go rambling in the Middle East and walked the entire length of the Israeli Separation Barrier crossing between the Israeli and the Palestinian side. This is the story of 300 000 settlers, a 750 km wall, six arrests, one stoning, too much hummus and a simple question… “Can you ever get away from it all with a good walk?” 

Post show talk on Tue 22 Feb

A post show talk will follow the show on Tue 22 Feb. The talk will feature Mark and two other speakers from regional groups. The talk will be directly after the show and take about 40 minutes. Everyone is welcome to stay, and attendees of the show on Mon 21 Feb are welcome to come back and chat.

Talk:What Lies Behind America’s Pro-Israel Policy?
