This Beautiful Future

02 November — 25 November

It’s back.

Following a sell-out and critically-acclaimed run earlier this year, ★★★★★ This Beautiful Future returns for a limited time only.

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 we’ve 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”. Come and fall head over heels in love.

Post Show Conversation
Monday 13 November, 9:30pm.

Join us after the performance of This Beautiful Future for a open conversation about the show. A chance for audience members and the creative team to come together to respond, reflect, and raise questions.

Free with a ticket to that evening’s performance.

Dialogue Theatre Club

Wednesday 22 November, 9:30pm.

Dialogue Theatre Club is a post-show discussion with a difference. It works more like a book group: the people who made the show aren’t present, so you can talk freely about what you thought of it, in an informal environment where every opinion counts.

Hosted by blogger Maddy Costa and producer Jake Orr, Dialogue Theatre Club doesn’t ask theatre-makers to explain their work, but invites audiences to interpret it for each other, sharing views and ideas over a drink.

Free with a ticket to that evening’s performance.
