Lately

Lately

Nominated for Best New Play - offwestend.com

Overview

“You’ve never been on your own, you always just thought you were…”

Cal & Alf. Callum & Alison. They were supposed to be part of each other’s lives forever, if only the universe had let things happen the way they should.

But whoever they were before, they’re different people now, and the problem with living here is that is always pulls you back again, no matter how hard you try to get away.

And the universe that sent them spinning into free-fall throws them together again when the girl who ran away comes back to find out what happened to the boy who didn’t want to leave.

And the question that the universe needs to answer most of all now is - Whatever happens to those bits of us we leave behind and thought we’d lost forever?

Proforca Theatre Company presents “Lately” by James Lewis, directed by David Brady, which makes its debut at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre in September 2021, an intimate, emotional story about the places we can never escape from, the dreams we never realise and the people that bring us back down to earth again.

Proforca Theatre Company is the managing company in residence at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre, Kentish Town. Lately is a brand new piece of work for the company, following the critically acclaimed "Feel" (2018-19 Lion & Unicorn Theatre & Tour) and the award nominated "At Last" (2019) and "AAAAA [FiveA] (2020) - (Lion & Unicorn & Albany Theatre Coventry).

CONTENT ADVISORY: Contains very strong language, adult themes and discussions of suicide.

Thetare Things

The beautiful Lyrical script by James Lewis was a pleasure to hear. The work is cleverly circular with a lot of ground being covered effortlessly in between
