Nottingham Playhouse Theatre Company presents

Tony's Last Tape

By Andy Barrett

Saturday 17 & Sunday 18 September 2016

Neville Studio - Tickets: £15


An old man sits in a room faced with a collection of recording devices that he has collected over his long and eventful life. He opens a drawer, takes out a pipe, unscrews his flask and pours himself the first cup of tea of the day.

For more than fifty years he has been recording everything that has happened to and around him and, as the years have passed, so the burden of this documentation has grown. And today he has decided to make his last tape.

Based on the diaries of Tony Benn, one of Britain’s most respected, divisive and celebrated politicians, this critically‑acclaimed play returns to Nottingham Playhouse prior to a national tour.
