"The exceptional ensemble combines exquisite, highly physical acting and wonderfully integrated live music..." – The Daily Telegraph
Agata is 6 years-old and is going to the railway station with her father. Everyone seems very happy, only Agata has the strange feeling that she will never see her father again. On the train, overcome with tiredness and hunger, she absent-mindedly chews on the paper name-tag tied around her neck...
... and very slowly consumes her name and address, and erases any chance of returning back home again. Drawing on true stories and accounts of the Kindertransport, NIE shines a light onto some of Europe's darkest history and emerges with a story of survival, love and hope.
The End of Everything Ever was developed at the Festival of European Theatre Regions in Hradec Kralove and in the small village of Mseno (both located in the Czech Republic), before receiving its world premiere at The Junction, Cambridge in September 2005. It has since been performed to audiences across the world, including China and South Korea. The show is now only played as part of the European Narratives Trilogy, together with My Long Journey Home and Past Half Remembered.
