Made in China


Monday 24th August – Friday 28th August 2015 – 2pm

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.

Tonight I’m Gonna Be The New Me 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.

‘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.’ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian (on Get Stuff Break Free)

‘marvellously unusual… Gym Party finds the sweet spot between pure play, sociopolitical satire and personal confession… sharp, silly and surprisingly tender’ **** The Times Created by Tim Cowbury and Jessica Latowicki
