Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone
GODS ARE FALLEN AND ALL SAFETY GONE
Development supported by Almeida Theatre
Play first commissioned by Oran Mor’s A Play, A Pie and A Pint.
We are delighted to be taking part in TBILISI INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL with a fantastic group of international artists.
GODS ARE FALLEN AND ALL SAFETY GONE is an investigation into what happens when we discover that our parents are flawed human beings, and that at some point, sooner than we think, they are suddenly going to disappear from our lives.
Intimate and funny, this play presents a lifetime of conversations, condensed into one hour.

***** Plays To See
“quiet little punch in the face of a play” Huffington Post
“It feels less like a traditional theatrical suspension of disbelief and more as if some kind of transference is taking place.”
Lyn Gardner, **** THE GUARDIAN.
“It’s a very pure form of theatre – intimate, pared down and emotionally true.”
Natasha Tripney, **** THE STAGE
“What a quiet, restrained and gently devastating piece this is!”
Miriam Gillinson, **** TIME OUT
“This is searching, intelligent work that gently shakes us then quietly ends, leaving behind a bruise and an ache.”
Sam Marlowe, **** THE TIMES
“Gods Are Fallen isn’t trying to tell you off for sometimes being a dickhead to your mum. It tells you how inevitable being a dickhead is, and that even when you feel bad about it, you’ll do it again.”
“I suggest you take your mother along to see it. Walk out with her arm-in-arm, just like I did. It may be too early for drinks at that point, but it won’t be too late to talk.
For as long as it’s not too late to talk to your mother, “Gods are fallen” may not break your heart.”
Natalia Antonova, on ‘Gods Are Fallen And All Safety Gone’, The Moscow News.
