Synopsis


Before Evening Comes explores a future where the perceived threat young boys of colour pose has finally been eliminated.


The government mandates that once a boy turns thirteen, his right leg is to be amputated just above the knee.


Time begins with Totome excited to meet "the butcher" (James) and finally become a man.


Totome's mother Mary, hopes his talent for tap dancing will allow him to stay whole.


Theatre503 International Playwriting Award 2018 finalist Philana Imade Omorotionmwan delivers a devastating and terrifying allegory for a future that no longer seems as far-fetched as we can imagine.
