The History of the World Based on Banalities
Kopergietery and Richard Jordan Productions in association with Theatre Royal Plymouth, Summerhall and Big in Belgium
Apr 25 – May 5, 2018 | York Theatre [map link]
A seemingly ‘banal’ youngster’s ambitious, ‘highly gifted’ mother is dangerously ill. He decides to isolate himself from the outside world and spend the very last months of his mother’s life looking after her.
Not that she ever did anything like that for him…
Starting from run-of-the-mill situations and objects, the young man embarks on a quirky voyage through his mother’s past, and that of the world.
The draw: Titus De Voogdt, from TV series The Missing, stars in this Scotsman Fringe First winner
