She’d seen him before;
pink shirt, dark hair, grey suit… jaw.
Oh yes, she’d seen him before.
He couldn’t quite place her face.
What happens when two totally different Londoners find themselves face to face on the worst day of their lives?
The End of History is a moving and funny site-responsive play with music which uses a chance encounter to explore the impact of gentrification on two radically different individuals. Paul is a gay party boy working in property, Wendy works in the charity sector. They belong to two different Londons but have one thing in common; they’re both alone in the city.
Staged off-site at St Giles-in-the-Fields Church in Soho, a part of London synonymous with Hogarth’s slums but which now sits in the centre of massive redevelopment project including Crossrail, Central St Giles Piazza and Centrepoint, The End of History draws on its historical past and its precarious present to create a panoramic portrait of a divided city.
