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.
