In 2010, or maybe 2011 – it’s hard to be certain about these things – I wrote and performed a show called It’s Always Right Now, Until It’s Later. I originally performed it at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the Traverse Theatre every morning at 10.30am, before restaging it at St Ann’s Warehouse in New York, the National Theatre in London and the Royal Exchange in Manchester.
This film was made on one single night towards the end of the Manchester run, and is the entire show in real time. We showed it at the Latitude Festival a couple of years ago, but besides that it’s just been sitting on various hard drives whilst I decide what to do with it.
This feels like a slight shame, because I do think it’s pretty good, and over Christmas I had the idea of putting together a limited tour of interesting, lovely or odd cinemas, where I would introduce a screening of the film.
So this is that tour.
