Written and performed by Sam Ward
“The show that we're about to do is a story of the future. The story we're going to tell is the story of us. I'm going to tell you this now: it doesn't have a happy end.”
A lone performer tells the story of the future of the audience; what’s going to happen to them in the decades, centuries, millenia after the end of this show. There's a baby born in a lighthouse, there's someone on fire in the middle of the desert, there's two lovers reunited in a flooded city, there's a spaceship on the edge of a black hole. Everything has already been decided. This is the story of the end.
From multi-award winning performance company YESYESNONO comes an act of communal storytelling. A hopeful, hopeless prophecy for earth and humankind. A story of us, our future, of paradise and how we get there in the end.
After sold-out, critically-acclaimed runs in Edinburgh and London, we were promised honey! arrives in New York City for its US debut.
YESYESNONO is a multi-award winning performance company based in the UK. In 2018 they were listed in The Guardian as one of the "Best Young Companies" in the United Kingdom.
