Anything Is Possible… runs 21-25 February 2018 at VAULT Festival

‘I am U=I-R. A formula that will never end. It will run in your blood and feed your bones and all images you look at will be tinged with grey. For this I am truly sorry. But remember you were once happy’

Alex and Rupert were destined to meet in Cafe Nero on a drizzly Monday morning. They were destined to drink wine on the Southbank, sip lattes, share stories and fall in love. They were destined for happiness but happiness tripped up.

From the writer and director of No Place For A Woman comes a work in progress of a new story of love, loss, grief and (un)happiness. If you could choose to end all unhappiness with a simple equation, even if it meant erasing all those things that made you sad, would you do it?

Anything Is Possible If You Think About It Hard Enough features author Cordelia O’Neill as Alex alongside Robert Bradley as Rupert and Max Hutchinson as the narrator. The premiere production is directed by Kate Budgeon for Small Things Theatre Company.

Anything Is Possible If You Think About It Hard Enough runs at the VAULT Festival from Wednesday 21 February to Sunday 25 February 2018, with performances (60 minutes) nightly at 7.15pm and a 5pm matinee on Sunday 25 February. Tickets are priced £11.50. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!
