Irish Independent Theatre Highlight 2017

This is a show about memory (but not nostalgia).

Come see ex-lovers argue about when they were happiest. Come see police officers rewrite history. They don’t mean to, but they do. Come see Rasputin dance like no one’s watching. Also the Queen is there.

We’re going to feed the present to the past. It’s a kind of ritual. A kind of sacrifice. Memory always is.


★★★★★ Everything Not Saved is a carousel of human interactions… Malaprop Theatre have created a masterclass in remembrance, which you will not forget — A Younger Theatre

★★★★ Malaprop’s deeply layered meta-theatricality dances a step ahead of the audience, teasing and probing — The Guardian

★★★★ This is very intelligent and very neatly put together theatre. It knows exactly what it is doing, and it does it with an aesthetic swagger and style that can sometimes be lacking on the fringe — Lyn Gardner, The Independent

★★★★ A wonderfully idea-dense work — The Stage

★★★★ A fascinating, maze-like meditation on reminiscence and record – Irish Times

Superb. A flash of theatricality this awesome isn’t as easy to forget – Exeunt Magazine
