Total Immediate Collective Imminent Terrestrial Salvation

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

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 & GibbThe AuthorAn Oak TreeBeginners). 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.
