This Beautiful Future (Yard Theatre re-mount)
Following a sell-out and critically-acclaimed run earlier this year, ★★★★★ This Beautiful Future returns to the Yard Theatre, Hackney, for a limited run (2 - 25 November 2017).
New cast members include Abigail Lawrie (Tin Star, The Casual Vacancy, Murdered For Being Different) as Elodie, and Tom Morley (The Musketeers, Humans) as Otto. The remainder of the cast is composed of Alwyne Taylor (Flowers in the Forest, Jermyn Street Theatre) and Paul Haley (The One Day of the Year, Finborough) will reprise their roles to complete the cast.
Caught in the middle of a war, two teenagers take shelter from a world divided.
Elodie is 17. She’s a French school girl. Otto is 15. He’s a German soldier. Safe from the debris outside, for one night they talk, they tease, they touch.
They fall in love and fall through time.
This Beautiful Future seeks out tenderness in the tragedy and hope in the hopeless. To find a little bit of heaven, even if it’s just for one night.
Written by Rita Kalnejais and directed by The Yard’s Artistic Director Jay Miller, it’s the first time the Yard Theatre has given audiences a second chance to see a show. One which they called “the show of the year” and “everything a theatre experience should be”.
