Wed 20-Thu 21 May
“I want to start a revolution here.”
what happens to the hope at the end of the evening is the latest collaboration between long-term friends and award-winning theatre makers Tim Crouch and Andy Smith.
It is a story about this evening, one evening and every evening; a 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.
From the creators of An Oak Tree, The Author and Adler and Gibb comes this spirited, funny and thought-provoking play about finding oneself and finding togetherness.
