Total Immediate Collective Imminent Terrestrial Salvation

Written by Tim Crouch

Illustrated by Rachana Jadhav

Directed by Karl James & Andy Smith

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

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.

The audience will each be given a book which they follow during the show. Don’t forget your reading glasses.

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

The Arts Desk ★★★★★ "...a brilliant meta-theatrical experiment. It is touched not by God, but by sheer theatrical genius."

Independent ★★★★ "Brilliant and dream-like"

Guardian ★★★★
