Past Event

what happens to the hope at the end of the evening

Sat 1 Feb 2014

Your friend is late. The meal is spoiled. A shadow has fallen. The story of this evening, one evening and every evening. The story of two men meeting in the middle of their lives, and at the outer edges of their friendship. As they strive for common ground – as they fight and fail, as the wine is drunk and the world falls apart – the possibility of the theatre as a place for community and change comes alive.

This extraordinary new play by long-term friends and award-winning theatre-makers Andy Smith and Tim Crouch (An Oak Tree, ENGLAND, The Author), opened to critical acclaim at the Almeida Theatre, London, in July 2013. It marks a welcome return to Brighton Festival for Crouch, whose I, Malvolio was a highlight of the 2010 programme. 

Written and performed by Tim Crouch and Andy Smith
Directed by Karl James
