The End of Hope

21 July 2017 – 29 July 2017


So I decided to dispose of the body myself.  I chopped him up with a kitchen knife and I thought about burying him in the back garden but I couldn’t be bothered with all that digging so I just threw him in the bin.  

Dermot and Janet are about to have a one night stand. Before sealing the deal, though, Dermot must:
a)         Check she agrees that Tony Blair's a war criminal.
b)         Establish whether she killed her ex-husband
c)         Reluctantly accept she does not realise he's famous.

David Ireland's witty and insightful comedy follows his critically-acclaimed Cyprus Avenue at the Royal Court Theatre.
