Never Not Once runs at London’s Park Theatre from 1 to 25 April 2020

After my 2019 event to Katharine Farmer’s revival of 1980s Wall Street satire Other People’s Money, I’m delighted to reunite with the director on another serving of American theatre, this time the UK premiere of an award-winning new play, Carey Crim’s Never Not Once.

A poignant new drama about the families we choose and the secrets that can pull them apart.

In Never Not Once, all-American college student Eleanor wants to know who her father is. Her two mums can’t agree. But everything changes when Eleanor’s boyfriend Rob hires a private investigator to find her biological father. The family are forced to confront an unexpected and explosive answer to the question: “Where do I come from?”

Written by young American playwright Carey CrimNever Not Once won the 2017 Jane Chambers Playwriting Award and was a finalist for the 2018 Eugene O’Neill Award. Crim’s other plays include Conviction, Paint Night, Growing Pretty, Wake and Some Couples May. Her work has been produced and workshopped at theatres across the United States.

“With a multi-racial cast of well-defined characters, complex development, and a nuanced lens on sexuality, non-traditional family and taking responsibility, this play is theatrically satisfying and socially urgent” – Jane Chambers Award committee

The UK premiere production of Never Not Once is directed by Katharine Farmer and presented by Blue Touch Paper Productions in association with Park Theatre. Casting and further creatives is still to be announced.

After the 7.45pm performance of Never Not Once on Wednesday 8 April 2020, I’ll be joined by director Katharine Farmer and the members of the company. Any questions? Join us!
