Kieran Hurley

A city. Just like this. Right now. A teenage girl boils up in rage in a toilet cubicle. A finance worker preaches doom in a busy train station. An absurd coke-addled celebrity races through town on a mission. A paranoid stoner stares blankly at the endless disasters on the TV news. In just one moment, all their worlds will end.

Multi award-winner Kieran Hurley weaves a picture of a familiar city at its moment of destruction, asking what would we do if we found ourselves at the end of our world as we know it.

2016 The Scotsman Fringe First award winner

'Superb storytelling theatre… Hurley’s new show is a quiet hurricane blowing through the city. It is anxious whisper that becomes a shout; a moment of silence that turns into the high-pitched whine of catastrophe’  ★★★★ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

‘Acutely observed yet ferociously powerful storytelling… an absolute highlight of the Edinburgh Fringe' ★★★★ The Independent

'Urgent, compelling, beautiful writing… confirms Hurley’s status as one of the most powerful writers to emerge in British theatre this decade' ★★★★ The Scotsman
