The play centers around the afterlives of four characters who, finding themselves in a mysterious ‘Void’, are informed by the equally enigmatic Guide that they must choose one memory from their lives in which to spend eternity.

That you must choose one single memory from your life – everything else will be erased forever
That choosing this memory is your only way of passing through to eternity
That you have one hour to choose
From your whole life, from all you’ve ever done, felt or thought… what is the one thing you treasure most?
The characters in 100 are forced to choose and re-enact their memories, using only their bodies and bamboo sticks in fluidly transforming ‘sets’. We are magically transported to a dramatic French motorbike race, a South American rainforest and a London tube train as each character in turn tries to capture their memory for eternity.
100 won a Fringe First Award for ‘innovation in theatre and outstanding new production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it enjoyed a total sell-out run.
