The Be All and End All
York Theatre Royal presents the world première of The Be All and End All.
Starring Imogen Stubbs
How far would you go to get your child that A*?
What happens to a family when privilege is abused and trust vanishes… when cheating becomes a code to live by and deception a justified means to an end?
They have it all – the perfect family life – the perfect future. Or so it seems. High achieving, successful, loving parents, they only want the very best for their son. That’s what everyone wants after all … but who’s it really for? When desire allows you to lose sight of what is morally right, when manipulation takes over, the consequences can be devastating.
A story of a family torn apart by a hunger for success and fear of failure. Is it really The Be All And End All?
A world premiere, directed by Damian Cruden.
