‘Engrossing, elegant. Astonishing physicality’ Time Out

This powerful new verbatim work by DV8 Physical Theatre at the National Theatre follows the extraordinary life story of one man....John.

After years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive, John’s desire for a new life leads him to a place unknown by most.

Based on frank interviews conducted by DV8’s Artistic Director, Lloyd Newson, John combines spoken word with movement to create a touching and poignant theatrical experience.
