'Do you ever look at the people you use to know and love and wonder when? When did they suddenly disappear from your life?'
Winner of The Creativity Award 2018. In the beginning God created the heavens and earth and... Max! After a car crash, Max questions what happened to Tess. Answers take the form of 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, whose guilt is driving him away. Chris has two options, watch his brother fall apart or choose a new form of treatment which will allow him to alter Max’s life forever.

Theatre Company Reviews:
Without a question this show was created by true artists. Whether one is looking for creative writing, great directing or charismatic actors - this performance has it all. The realities of life, dream and hallucination are beautifully interwoven offering the spectator an amazing journey. I sat in absolute stillness for the whole show. Questions, emotions, feelings were coming and going in the most organic and natural way. Having won Fringe First, back during my acting career, I know how difficult it is to create something that stands out from hundreds of shows. This show certainly has something magical, that the audience will certainly remember. Marcin Rudy- Song of The Goat
“Testament” is a beautiful piece about loss and love. Most of the action takes place from inside the mind of car crash survivor as he’s recovering, allowing for an interesting insight into the fragmented and non-liner process of our memories. The show leads us on a journey that asks important questions about the value we place on relationships and the importance of our shared experiences. It’s a thoughtful piece that thoroughly charmed me. - Luke Clarke The Alchemist Theatre Company
