News today of the July 2 celebrations marking the Everyman’s closure. Sounds like there won’t be a dry eye on Hope Street as the theatre ends its last day with a finale courtesy of Slung Low, the brilliantly imaginative theatre company that took audiences out and about last autumn with their Anthology series.
Together Slung Low and the Everyman will create a free public event, to be held outside so as many people as possible can take part. People can gather from 9.30pm for the 30 minute event which will begin at dusk outside the theatre, for what they’re calling “a rousing send-off with surprises a-plenty”.
Earlier in the day, between 2pm and 6pm, the theatre will open its doors to the public to share each other’s experiences and explore the building for another free event, including a collection of memories from 1964 to present day.
Until June 24, there is an opportunity for anyone to contribute their memories towards the event. There will be a drop-in session from 3pm til 6pm on Friday June 24, or messages can be left on the Everyman’s facebook page or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org as either a written memory or a sound file.
