It's Always Right Now, Until It's Later

National Theatre Lyttelton, South Bank, London

It's Always Right Now, Until It's Later is a new show by Daniel Kitson about everything and nothing.

This is a show about every single one of us, the past in our pockets, the future in our hearts and us, ourselves, very much stuck, trapped forever, in the tiny eternal moment between the two.

Originally performed at 10:00 throughout the 2010 Edinburgh Fringe to sold-out audiences of drowsy but delighted devotees, Kitson's  It's Always Right Now, Until It's Later is restaged at the National Theatre for the first time at the opposite end of the day.

It's Always Right Now, Until It's Later is Kitson's most ambitious, funny, heartbreaking and human show to date.

Kitson is an award-winning stand-up comedian and storyteller.
