Testament

    About

    PART OF INCOMING FESTIVAL 2019

    Testament is an award-winning play exploring suicide, loss and guilt.

    In the beginning God created the heavens and Earth and… Max! Max is in a car crash with his brother and his girlfriend Tess, who dies in the accident. Following the loss of Tess, he tries to commit suicide and fails, but when he wakes up, he believes she is still alive, leaving him left questioning what happened.

    Answers appear as apparitions of modernised biblical characters, aiding Max in his discovery or tempting him away. His only hope of recovery lies in the hands of his brother, Chris.

    Chalk Line Theatre is a multi award-winning Luton, Nottingham and London-based company formed in 2018.

      "easy to see why it was so successful at Edinburgh Fringe, and London audiences will surely heap just as much praise on this brave new piece of work."
