Theatrical Spring is in the air!!
Togo Igawa is performing at the National Theatre, in their opening play ‘After Life’.
“If you could spend eternity with just one precious memory, what would it be? … A group of strangers grapple with this impossible question as they find themselves in a bureaucratic waiting room between life and death. Encouraged by enigmatic officials, they must sift through their past lives to choose their forever.”
Inspired by Hirokazu Kore-eda’s award-winning film, ‘After Life’ is a surreal and powerfully human look at the way we view our lives, from writer Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) Bunny Christie (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) and acclaimed Director, Jeremy Herrin.
A National Theatre co-production with Headlong, ‘Afterlife’ will open in The Dorfman with performances from 2 June – 24 July 2021.
So, look stage left, look stage right and move aside Lockdown… Theatre is back!
