Published by Methuen Drama

The show that we're about to do is a story about the future

The story that we're going to tell is the story of us - the story of our future

It's a story that we are going to tell together

I hope that sounds okay

From the makers of Five Encounters on a Site Called Craigslist and the accident did not take place comes an act of communal storytelling

There's a baby born in a lighthouse, a man on fire in the middle of the desert, two lovers reunited in a ruined city, there's a dying spaceship on the edge of a black hole

we were promised honey! is a hopeful, hopeless prophecy for humankind

A meditation on inevitability, despair and how we tell a story when we already know the end

A one-person performance

This edition was published to coincide with the production at Paines Plough Roundabout, Summerhall, in August 2022
