About EIF: Total Immediate Collective Imminent Terrestrial Salvation

WORLD PREMIERE

"Jesus didn’t die so we could be reborn, lady, the stars did."

The writer leads his followers towards the end of this world and the start of a new one. The book he’s written predicts it all – the equations, the black hole, all the words we’ll speak till then.

On this last day, at this last hour, a defector finds her voice and returns.

Total Immediate Collective Imminent Terrestrial Salvation is a new play by Tim Crouch (Adler & Gibb, The Author, An Oak Tree, Beginners). It tells the story of a man who, compensating for his own failure, manipulates a group of people to sit in a place together and believe in something that isn’t true.

The play is presented through the parallel worlds of stage action and illustrated text. Audience and actors turn the pages together. They study the images together. Sometimes – with agreement – they share the words.

Written by Tim Crouch.
Directed by Karl James and Andy Smith.
Illustrated by Rachana Jadhav.

A National Theatre of Scotland production in association with Teatro do Bairro Alto, Lisbon and Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts (ACCA). Co-commissioned with the Royal Court Theatre.
