About R2R - TONIGHT I’M GONNA BE THE NEW ME
Fri 28 April | Doors 7.15pm | £5
Part of the 'Right to Roam' Festival
A woman takes to the stage. A man watches from the wings. They both wonder if their love will survive what’s about to happen.
Tonight I’m Gonna Be The New Me is an arresting physical endurance act that crashes headfirst into an impossibly true love story - and out the other side. It exposes how we perform our relationships amidst a reality that just won’t live up to what the movies promised.
Disarmingly honest and comically imagined, Tonight I’m Gonna Be The New Me pierces the bloody heart of our obsession with outlasting hardship. Intimate and startlingly immediate, it defies you to watch, in spite of yourself.
