The End of History
First as tragedy. Second as farce. Now a musical.
A new musical by the creative team behind Blair on Broadway ("An unmissable evening in the theatre" - Sir Derek Jacobi), The End of History is about a class of GCSE students attempting to get to grips with puberty – and the events of the 20th century. From the Treaty of Versailles to the fall of the Berlin Wall, via Munich and mocks, Potsdam and parties, Cuba and crushes, is their future any more certain than the past? And might the ‘end’ of history be the beginning of something else? From 1920s’ French jazz to 1980s’ rock, via swing, bebop and rock n’ roll, The End of History is a musical for the 21st century which will appeal to anyone interested in the 20th century.
