The Rest of Your Life

by Barney Norris
Sold out

“Some nights you wait for all your life… These mark the way. And they all pass you by as you come ever closer to the one you wait for, the day you die. And of course there are nights like this one.”

In a café on the Uxbridge Road Nick is getting ready to cash up when his routine is interrupted by a late night visitor. Over a cup of coffee and under a harsh florescent light, Hannah begins to unravel Nick’s past. Was she part of his story or does she have the wrong man? Is she here to reconnect or is her motive darker? Is she who she says she is? Is Nick?

Justice, truth, and privacy collide in this intimate play with a dark heart from Critics’ Circle Award-winning playwright Barney Norris (Visitors, Bush and Arcola theatres, 2014; Eventide, Arcola Theatre, 2015).
