RedBellyBlack Theatre Company (“Dynamic and absorbing theatre” – ★★★★★ The Skinny) asked 14 people this question, and the answers were astonishing. Children, nonagenarians, new parents and trauma survivors told us how they felt about the passing of time. Five actors from various creative backgrounds came together to put those answers into a visually stunning verbatim performance.
Following a hugely successful run at the Tristan Bates Theatre, ‘A Year From Now’ returns to the stage with new answers to some seemingly simple questions. What do you make time for? What has been the time of your life? Are you where you thought you’d be a year ago?
Using a unique combination of movement and audio narration, the cast will guide you through the participants’ responses. (“Intricately constructed, full of the marrow of life” – ★★★★★ Female Arts ) From the four year-old who already knows that he is destined to be a racing car driver to the ninety-four year-old who is still driving, the stories we have to tell are moving, exciting, hilarious and disturbing.

RedBellyBlack is the international theatre and production company behind Edinburgh Fringe smash hit Tumbling After, a devised and delicious exploration of relationships shown from a bird’s eye view (“I can’t remember another production on the Fringe so unique, entertaining or perfectly formed” BROADWAYBABY ★★★★★).
A Year From Now was co-created by RedBellyBlack’s Artistic Director and founder Kate Goodfellow (Winner of Best Female Performer, Brighton Fringe) and Director Vicki Baron (“Baron knows how to gut-punch her audience like no other” – Views from the Gods).
