#letthecultureshine: Win a pair of Tickets to The Beauty of Ballet!



5 October 2021 to 9 October 2021 London

Proforca Theatre Company presents “Lately” by James Lewis, directed by David Brady, which made its debut at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre in September 2021, and now returning for an extension to that original run in from October 5th – 9th before heading for the Albany Theatre Coventry for a special one-off performance on Friday October 29th.

“The Monster always wins. Right?”

Cal & Alf. Callum & Alison. They were supposed to be part of each other’s lives forever, if only the universe had let things happen the way they should.

But whoever they were before, they’re different people now, and the problem with living here is that is always pulls you back again, no matter how hard you try to get away.

And the universe that sent them spinning into free-fall throws them together again when the girl who ran away comes back to find out what happened to the boy who didn’t want to leave.

And the question that the universe needs to answer most of all now is - Whatever happens to those bits of us we leave behind and thought we’d lost forever?

“Lately” is an intimate, emotional story about the places we can never escape from, the dreams we never realise and the people that bring us back down to earth again.


“A beautiful and personal drama, Lately’s themes of wanting to escape both physically & mentally from your life are relatable on so many levels” - Everything Theatre


“This is such an exquisite and sensitively written play, I would happily have spent another evening in its company.” - View From The Outside


“Lately is beautiful moving storytelling. It’s real life. It’s excellent theatre.“ - London Theatre Reviews
