“A Night At The End Of The World” begins with a solitary walk into an underground bunker. The doors close and you are immersed in a future that is too scary to fathom.

It is a unique and intimate play, and can almost be described as performance art. Starring Iven Gilmore, who gives a passionate performance filled with anger, dread, and longing; both for a banana and a lost love.

The play is directed by Carol Hayes and put on by Assemble Theatre Collective, a creative group aspiring to produce work that is both interesting and thought provoking to their audiences.

The play takes inspiration from the Irish one man/one act play, Krapp’s Last Tape by Samuel Beckett, performed in English, it opened the Copenhagen Irish Festival and is currently running until 14th November.
