UK 2016

CANADIAN PREMIERE

The apocalypse begins with tea. Featuring an all-female cast and crew, this remarkable interpretation of Caryl Churchill’s award winning play bends through time and space to illuminate four friends sitting in a garden, on the precipice of complete catastrophe. With wicked humour and profound prescience, master playwright Caryl Churchill (Cloud Nine) shows us a poetic world, close to devastation and closer than we think.

Approximate running time: 50 minutes with no intermission.

WINNER - BEST PLAY - WRITER'S GUILD AWARDS
