All We Ever Wanted Was Everything

Luke Barnes

PaperBack (03 Aug 2017)

Meet Leah and Chris; raised on Harry Potter, New Labour and a belief that one day they would be as ‘special’ as their parents promised. But what happens when those dreams don’t become reality?

Follow Leah and Chris over these twenty years as they realise the future they were promised as children hasn’t turned out as they hoped, against the backdrop of an asteroid heading for earth.

Told through performance and live music on multiple stages, with support from a different Humber Street Sesh band every night, this is Welly like you’ve never seen it before.

'Brilliantly punchy and poetic... a rousing and invigorating call to arms that speaks directly to anyone trying to find their place in the world.' WhatsOnStage ★★★★

'Hull has arrived in Edinburgh with all guns blazing... All We Ever Wanted was Everything is something between a play and a rock opera, MC’d by a raucous rocker played by Marc Graham. Accompanied by songs, composed by James Frewer and played by the performers, which accurately convey the relevant period, two lives are shown at ten-year intervals... It is only when evaluating their lives a decade on that happiness seems possible at the end of an evening that becomes more than the sum of its parts, any of which would be good on their own but are greatly enhanced in Paul Smith’s fine production.'
