In new two-hander 20:40, Alastair Hill and author David Kerby-Kendall are onstage together as the same man at two different points in his life. Sneak a peek into their preparations ahead of the play’s premiere at the Omnibus Theatre next month. Time to get booking!
Like an all-consuming fog, depression has invaded Michael’s mind.
Set on two evenings, twenty years apart, Michael, at ages 20 and 40, recalls the pivotal moments and people in his life; from Daniel, his soulmate and first love, to Jennifer, the outrageous girlfriend who becomes the distant wife. 20:40 is a study of one man’s irrepressible lust for life, fighting a disease he will always refer to as The Shadow.
In the two-hander, running at Omnibus Theatre from 4 to 16 June 2019, author David Kerby-Kendall stars as Michael at the age of 40, opposite Alastair Hill as Michael at 20. Julie Osman directs.
