About: At Last (feat At First)

"We don't know how to forgive, we only know how to forget"

The old world has fallen and something brave and new has taken its place. Out of the fire and rubble and the ashes something new is born. A chance to learn about the past and to discover who we were to save the future. A chance to find hope anew, or to tear open wounds which will never close again.

This is the story of ten years of hate. Ten years of oppression and anger when we gave ourselves up to the dark.

A story of the mother who fought for her broken sons, and the father that stood in judgement. The daughter willing to pay the ultimate price for freedom, the man who stood by and watched and the woman that listened.

This is the story of when the world went mad.

It is time to tell the truth.

At Last.

Proforca Theatre Company returns this September with "At Last" – a brand new piece of writing which will make its debut as part of the Autumn / Winter season at the newly relaunched Lion & Unicorn Theatre. "At Last" is a dark, brutal, almost verbatim-style selection of interconnected monologues which tell the "what if" story of the aftermath of 10 years of a totalitarian right wing regime in the UK. It is a searing search for redemption and reconciliation in the rubble of a broken society, whilst questioning who we are when everything that makes us human is stripped away.

"At Last" is preceded prior to specific performances by "At First" written by Hannah Bates and will be performed prior to the shows on 13th, 17th, 19th & 20th September 2019.

Contains Strong language, Adult Themes, depictions and descriptions of torture and physical abuse
