A one-woman show, directed by Katharina Reinthaller, telling the comic story of the encounter between modern migrant Cecilia and London – a contemporary El Dorado craved by generations of young Europeans. Arriving in the UK nine years ago, Cecilia’s mission began – trying to become British whilst remaining deeply Italian. She started her life abroad with thrilling adventures, a successful career and a vibrant lifestyle... kind of. Now, numerous dubious jobs and weird encounters later, she finds herself alone among the chaos of multi-ethnic London whilst the European dream of life abroad slowly drifts away.
