All of Me
(the possibility of future splendour)

Written by Caroline Horton
Directed by Alex Swift

“Hello – I thought I’d introduce myself properly – As is polite.”

Written and performed by Olivier Award nominee Caroline Horton – an intimate and absurd exploration of wanting to live, wanting to die and what can happen if we sit together with the dark.

Grudgingly hopeful, occasionally funny, Caroline reunites with director Alex Swift (Mess) to bring you an unapologetically dark show about dark things.

Recorded in Caroline’s living room during lockdown, All of Me: The Audio is an intimate, absurd exploration of wanting to live, wanting to die and what can happen if we sit together with the dark.

Adapted from the grudgingly hopeful, occasionally funny, multi award-winning stage show, Caroline, director Alex Swift and sound designer Elena Peña bring you a dark audio trip about dark things.

For more information, please visit All of Me: The Audio page.

All of Me: The Twine is an intimate, absurd online exploration for one player of wanting to live, wanting to die and what can happen if we sit together with the dark.

Adapted from the grudgingly hopeful, occasionally funny stage show, this is Caroline and director Alex Swift’s first leap into the world of interactive digital work. In this new Twine version, the player must navigate their own journey through this unapologetically dark show about dark things.

Twine is an online tool for telling interactive, nonlinear stories.
