Two retired scientists in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them crumbles. Together they are going to live forever on yoghurt and yoga, until an old friend arrives, and nothing can stay the same. 

“We’re not dead yet my love. Our age, you have to show no fear to Death, it’s like bulls, you can’t run away or they’ll charge. You’ve got to keep grabbing him by the lapels, poking him in the eye and saying: not yet mate. I’ve got your number, boyo.”

Tickets, £13, available from the HD&OS website.
