“A modern classic!” First raves and an OffWestEnd.com Offies Awards commendation are in for the world premiere of Proforca Theatre’s At Last. We’ve rounded up selected review highlights below. Don’t delay to book – this strictly limited season must finish at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre this Saturday 21 September.
A dark, brutal, almost verbatim-style selection of interconnected monologues, At Last tells the “what if” story of the aftermath of ten years of a totalitarian right-wing regime in the UK. It is a searing search for redemption and reconciliation in the rubble of a broken society, whilst questioning who we are when everything that makes us human is stripped away.
This is the story of when the world went mad.
It is time to tell the truth.
At Last is co-written by James Lewis and Alexander Knott and helmed by Proforca artistic director David Brady with associate director Jess Barton. The cast for Proforca’s premiere production features Melissa Phillips, Anthony Fagan, Gemma Wray, Demelza O’Sullivan, David Angland, Michael Faulkner and Malcolm Jeffries (John).
At Last is accompanied by a response piece featuring the “expanded universe” of the story. At First, written by Hannah Bates and performed by Ciaran Lonsdale, is staged at specified performances.
At Last runs at the Lion and Unicorn Theatre, 42-44 Gaisford St, Kentish Town, London NW5 2ED from 10 to 22 September 2019 with performances Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £12-14. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
