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.
