what happens to the hope at the end of the evening

Tim Crouch and Andy Smith

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.

Whether it will make any difference, though – well, that’s another question.”★★★★Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman

“Wonderful, original, powerful theatre.”★★★★A Younger Theatre

“It’s like a lo-fi My Dinner With Andre… has an emotional charge under its cool surface…is propelled by a sense of investigation into friendship, performance, identity. I found it quietly thrilling.”★★★★The Times
