Preston Bill, The

Preston Bill, The
This is a work of fiction. Any names, characters, events or locations depicted are the product of the imagination. Any resemblance to actual persons (living or dead) is entirely coincidental. It's also a kind of history play. I'll admit that there are plenty of gaps, but that's OK. You can fill them in. Let's begin. Award-winning theatre-maker Andy Smith presents a new piece of theatre telling a story from the north. The story of a life. The story of our lives. Exploring some of the events of the last eighty years alongside the experience of a man who has lived through it, the work looks to examine as well as challenge some of our ideas of identity, location and history.

What Happens To the Hope At the End Of the Evening

What Happens To the Hope At the End Of the Evening
Your friend is late. the meal is spoiled. A shadow has fallen. the story of this evening, one evening and any evening. the story of a reunion, a reiteration and an act of betrayal. A journey into the space between opposing beliefs; between action and inaction; between forms; between friends.

Notes:
what happens to the hope at the end of the evening is created by long-term collaborators Tim Crouch, Andy Smith (a smith) and Karl James.
