"Funny and provocative. Fantastic!" – Corrine Curtis (Audience member)
Everything Falls Apart follows the story of two boys smuggled into the UK hoping for a better life and one manʼs focused pursuit of justice at all costs. As the two boys travel from Eastern Europe and into Londonʼs murky, dangerous underworld, they witness the horrors of real life and cling on to the only thing that they have – each other.
Everything Falls Apart began life in November 2007 with a 2-week research and development residency at The Lyric Hammersmith, London. Rehearsal then continued during the following year at Odsherred Theater, Denmark and at The Junction, Cambridge, which hosted the premiere on 10th November, 2008.
This show has since played at The Lyric Hammersmith, Kanonhallen, PIT Festival, SZENE BUNTE WÄHNE Festival, Jindrichuv Hradec, La Fabrika, Mayfest, Helsinki, St Croix, Black Box, Kirkeparken and the Assitej Festival. Everything Falls Apart won the Award for Best Production 2010 from Norway's Culture in Schools Organisation.
