What happens to the hope at the end of the evening
In partnership with Bios, we invite you to What happens to the hope at the end of the evening, a new performance by long-term collaborators Tim Crouch and Andy Smith, directed by Karl James.
What happens to the hope at the end of the evening was part of the Almeida festival in London and the Forest Fringe in Edinburgh in 2013, and received extremely warm reviews. Tim Crouch’s play is by turns provocative, funny and self-reflexively pretentious.
The story of this evening, one evening and any evening. The story of a reunion, a reiteration and an act of betrayal. A journey into the space between opposing beliefs; between action and inaction; between forms; between friends. The story of two friends 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 and the world falls apart – the possibility of the theatre as a place for community and change comes alive.
