It's closing time at the Hope and Anchor and the only anchor is the hope of a better tomorrow.

Keith: 'Everyone of us colours things with the crayons that we have?' 

Steve: 'God Keith, you don't half talk bollocks sometimes'.

Time Please is a new work by writer / performers John Knowles and Kate Tym set in a run-down pub in a never up-and-coming part of town. The over-riding grimness being offset by the misplaced optimism of barman Steve, and the epic sarcasm of his wife, Cath.  

Enter, Keith Goodman, shambolic and drunk and with a planet-size chip on his shoulder. Keith is chock-full of wild conspiracy theories and grudges and has a hatched a plan to get his story heard and so begins a lock-in like no other.

Kate Tym and John Knowles have written and performed together for five years. Their work has been described as hilarious and deeply-disturbing by turns. Kate and John like to perform in unconventional spaces and do away with raised stages and proscenium arches - preferring to be in a setting where the intimacy of the audience is essential to the atmosphere of the piece.

This darkly-comic play will leave you with food for thought.

Time Please takes to the Cornerstone stage on Wednesday 9th May @ 7:30pm.
