“By the time the show comes to its quietly explosive conclusion, one finds that Crouch and Ringham have, like theatrical pickpockets, insinuated their way into one’s thoughts and feelings.”—Daily Telegraph, UK
The charming playwright /actor Tim Crouch wants to meet you. He’s heard about you and has important things to tell you. His is a tale of England, but it’s about an empire of a different kind. Minimalist and mesmerizing, England is performed in the Walker’s galleries by two “guides” (Crouch and actress Hannah Ringham) who disregard the distinction between audience and actor, theater and life. This tour through space and across borders—from an art gallery to a jam factory, from Edinburgh to Osaka—is a journey to the end of the world. Score by award-winning sound designer Dan Jones.Very limited seating.
