If you can’t trust your memory what can you trust?
Martin has a problem, he can’t make new memories. Since he went to the dentist ten years ago, every morning when he wakes up it’s 2008. He’s a cabbie with The Knowledge, but he can’t remember what happened yesterday.
Inspired by a true story, Timeless spends a single day in Martin’s bewildering world. It’s strange and unsettling for him, but his wife has the daily heartbreak of explaining just what’s wrong. And the strain is beginning to show.
A single-hander, written by Brian Coyle, directed by Charlotte Peters and performed by John Rayment, Timeless is a moving, sometimes funny and searching account of how his condition affects the whole family.
It has had two shorts runs: August 2018 at the Hen & Chickens in Islington as part of the Camden Fringe and in October 2018 at Theatre N16 also in London.
★★★★★ “a must see” North West End
★★★★★ “an absolute treat… I didn’t want it to end” London Theatre 1
★★★★ “a masterwork of understated wit and humanity” Everything Theatre
★★★★ “intelligent, thought-provoking and human” The Up Coming
Do our memories define us? What if we lose them? And how reliable are they anyway?
