We are delighted to announce that our brand new production for September 2019 will be a brutal, visceral and challenging new production “At Last” written by James Lewis & Alexander Knott and directed by David Brady and will receive its debut at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre and will launch it’s Autumn / Winter Season.
“We don’t know how to forgive, we only know how to forget.”
The old world has fallen and something brave and new has taken its place.
Out of the fire and rubble and the ashes something new is born. A chance to learn about the past and to discover who we are to save the future. A chance to find hope anew, or to tear open wounds which will never close again.
This is the story of ten years of hate. Ten years of oppression and anger when we gave ourselves up to the dark.
A story of the mother who fought for her broken sons, and the father that stood in judgement. The daughter willing to pay the ultimate price for freedom, the man who stood by and watched and the woman that listened.
This is the story of when the world went mad.
It is time to tell the truth.
Proforca Theatre Company returns this September with "At Last" - a brand new piece of writing which will make its debut as part of the Autumn / Winter season at the newly relaunched Lion & Unicorn Theatre. "At Last" is a dark, brutal, almost verbatim-style selection of interconnected monologues which tell the "what if" story of the aftermath of 10 years of a totalitarian right wing regime. It is a searing search for redemption and reconciliation in the rubble of a broken society, whilst questioning who we are when everything that makes us human is stripped away.
At Last is written by 5-star reviewed playwrights James Lewis and Alexander Knott. Directed by David Brady.
