Tim Key and Daniel Kitson in


A play for two people by Daniel Kitson

It’s early evening in the middle of autumn, it’s just starting to get dark and on a quiet residential street a man with a picnic basket, arrives late, at a tree.

The London premiere of a (relatively) new play about dissent, commitment, two people and a tree.

Tree was originally written by Daniel in his house during August of 2013, before being re-written, learnt, and rehearsed with Tim at Battersea Arts Centre and was designed and staged at the Manchester Royal Exchange that same September.
