A woman takes to the stage. A man watches from the wings. They both wonder if their love will survive what’s about to happen.
Made In China’s new show is an arresting physical endurance act that crashes headfirst into an impossibly true love story – and out the other side. It exposes how we perform our relationships amidst a reality that just won’t live up to what the movies promised.
Disarmingly honest and comically imagined, _Tonight I’m Gonna Be The New Me_ pierces the bloody heart of our obsession with outlasting hardship. Intimate and startlingly immediate, it defies you to watch, in spite of yourself.
★★★★ The Guardian “slippery and teasing, murderously entertaining”
★★★★ The Times ‘Tantalisingly edgy…a stinging piece of entertainment’
★★★★ Exeunt “funny, dark, and more than a little bit hostile”
★★★★ Time Out
★★★★ The Stage
★★★★ Whats On Stage
‘Not since Forced Entertainment burst on to the scene almost 30 years ago has a company arrived with such a fully formed and distinctive voice.’
