Does it feel like “it’s the end of the world as we know it”? Proforca Theatre’s new play At Last makes some predictions about what could happen next in our febrile times. Scroll through first-look production shots – and watch out for live-tweeting and live-streaming from tonight’s post-show Q&A. Time to get booking!
At Last runs from 10 to 22 September 2019, with a press night and post-show Q&A chaired by Mates co-founder Terri Paddock tonight (12 September), which will be live-streamed and live-tweeted via MyTheatreMates. It’s co-written by James Lewis and Alexander Knott and helmed by Proforca artistic director David Brady with associate director Jess Barton.
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.
The cast for Proforca’s premiere production features Melissa Phillips (Grace), Anthony Fagan (Colin), Gemma Wray (Nikki), Demelza O’Sullivan (Marie), David Angland (Danny), Michael Faulkner (Jack), Malcolm Jeffries (John) and Ciaran Lonsale (Sam). At Last is accompanied by a response piece featuring the “expanded universe” of the story. At First, written by Hannah Bates, 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!
