We Were Promised Honey!

‘The show that we’re about to do is a story of the future. The story we’re going to tell is the story of us. I’m going to tell you this now: it doesn’t have a happy end.’

A lone performer tells the story of the future of the audience; what’s going to happen to them in the decades, centuries, millenia after the end of
this show. It’s the story of a baby born in a lighthouse, of someone on fire in the middle of the desert, of two lovers reunited in a flooded city, of a
spaceship on the edge of a black hole. Everything has already been decided. This is the story of the end.

From the makers of Five Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist and the accident did not take place comes an act of communal storytelling.A hopeful, hopeless prophecy for earth and humankind. A story of us, our future, of paradise and how we get there in the end.

★★★★★

It’s an apocalyptic, strange hour of theatre that makes you feel grateful to be alive, grateful to be part of a communal gathering of people.

Alice Savile, The Financial Times

★★★★★

A truly captivating presence, Ward oscillates between a best friend, an executive life coach, and a preacher.

Katie Hawthorne, The Scotsman
