“You should all have a book.  Does everyone have a book? This book is part of the play. 
In a minute, we’ll all open this book and we’ll invite you to turn the pages.”

The writer manipulates a group of people to sit together and believe in something that isn’t true. The book he’s written predicts it all: the equations, the black hole and all the words we’ll speak until the end.

On this last day, at this last hour, a defector finds her voice and returns.

In this new play, presented through stage action and illustrated text, audience and actors turn the book’s pages together, they study the images and they sometimes share the words out loud.

Directed by Karl James and Andy Smith with illustration by Rachana Jadhav.

Tim Crouch is an experimental theatre maker who invites audiences to be active in the worlds his plays create. He returns to the Royal Court following The Author (2009) and Adler & Gibb (2014).  His other plays include My Arm, ENGLAND, An Oak Tree and Beginners.
