Like a sudden memory of falling from skyscrapers. A man, turning, and falling in the air. But it’s somehow more than that. Always. A last thing. Before sleep. It’s not a dream. I’m awake. In a room.

Explored through a mixture of both text and film, Always is a story of the planet, of inertia, desire, and their deadly consequences. At only 10 minutes running time, and made for just 15 audience members per show, this new piece from multi-award winning Theatre Absolute is intense, mesmerising, and engaging. Text by Chris O’Connell. Film by Ashley Brown. Performed by John Flitcroft.

Always is our first new piece of 2013. Commissioned by Holding Space, supported by Arts Council England
