Quarry Theatre Director’s Edinburgh Fringe 2018 pick! Highly recommended.
Tom’s girlfriend has vanished… So he has done what any right-minded man (and “theatre-maker”) would do in this situation, and turned his search for her into an “important” piece of “art”. Come “witness” it. (Nobody went missing in the creation of this show).
In reality… It’s Always Infinity is a narrative-driven character comedy show about toxic masculinity and the questionable role of the male creator, presented by a version of Tom who sees himself as ‘one of the good guys’ but is anything but. It combines projection, storytelling and character comedy to tell a story where ‘Tom’ reveals what an awful person he is.
Tom Neenan is the writer of The Mash Report, A Girl’s Guide to TV, Mock The Week (BBC2), The Last Leg (Channel 4), Spotlight Tonight, The News Quiz, The Now Show (BBC Radio 4). He’s also the writer & star of Tom Neenan’s The Hauntening (BBC Radio 4)
