Top StoryA meteor the size of LA hurtles towards earth, signalling the end of human life, in Sebastian Michael's apocalyptic comedy about two best friends, bearing witness to the end of the world from the comfort of their sofa. Directed by Adam Berzsenyi Bellaagh, Top Story is a poignant play transforms the end of the world from a disaster movie into a surprising burst of creative energy for two friends as they prepare, as best they can, to die together. Staged within the atmospheric Old Vic Tunnels, audiences can expect an injection of reality into the storyline as they experience the rumbling of trains above them.

The Old Vic Tunnels are an underground labyrinth of tunnels that offer a unique venue space for club nights, gigs, exhibitions and film screenings in their underground cinema. Built especially to screen the UK premiere of Banksy's film Exit through the Gift Shop, the cinema now hosts a number of film festivals. More about The Old Vic Tunnels
