The BIG OE explores the wild and crazy dimensions of the Overseas Experience using restored 8mm and VHS film clips, married together with live theatre. The journey begins in 1976 when Will Watson was 6 and traveled the States in a camper van with his parents who filmed the journey. His first adventure made the newspaper because they flew on a “jet plane”.
As Will’s age goes up, so does the passport stamps, the need for excitement and risky far flung places. This is a journey from boyhood to manhood exploring the wild, wild world of travel before it was sanitized and made safe by the internet.
