production information

Your friend is late.  The meal is spoiled.  A shadow has fallen. 

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.

what happens to the hope at the end of the evening is created by long-term collaborators Tim Crouch, Andy Smith (a smith) and Karl James. A new commission for the Almeida from the team behind The Author (Royal Court Upstairs) and the Obie Award-winning An Oak Tree.

Tim was an actor for many years before starting to write – and he still performs in much of his work. His plays include My Arm, ENGLAND (a play for galleries), the OBIE winning An Oak Tree and The Author, joint winner of the 2010 John Whiting Award. Tim tours his work nationally and internationally. He also writes for younger audiences, including a series of plays inspired by Shakespeare’s lesser characters. For the RSC Tim has directed The Taming of the Shrew, King Lear and I, Cinna (the poet) – all for young audiences. I, Shakespeare and Tim Crouch: Plays One are published by Oberon Books.
