All experiences of Doncaster-born storyteller and showman who is performing back in his hometown for the first time ever.

David Bramwell, 44, from Bessacarr, is bringing his show, the No 9 Bus To Utopia, to Doncaster’s Little Theatre.

Four years ago after splitting up with his long-term girlfriend, David embarked on a trip around Europe and America in search of Utopia.

His year-long travels took him to some weird and wonderful places from communities of treehouses and another that claimed to have invented a working time machine.

He said: “It’s an entertaining story to tell but it’s also got an important message to tell about how people can change to interact with their communities better.

He added that he is a little anxious about performing for a home crowd and admits that it’s a slightly less racy version than previous shows as members of his family - including two young nephews and his sister - are going to be in the audience.

He said: “I’ve got friends who I haven’t seen for 25 years coming to the show.”

David now lives in Brighton and teaches music part-time as well as producing a series of guides called, Cheeky Guides.

He also has plans for a show about Doncaster in the making but it’s still in its early stages.
