  • Aloff Theatre presents the world premiere of Telescope


    Caught between life and death, relearning everything he thought he knew, the hero of Elchin's comedy 'Telescope' is a classic everyman. But as he sees the human world he has left behind from a new perspective, how will he cope with the surprises in store from the people he thought he knew best of all? Aloff Theatre brings 'Telescope' to London for the first time in an immersive adaptation that gets to the heart of a story that challenges our conceptions of what we believe and what we know about our lives. Daily performances 25th Feb - 7th March. 7.30pm. Book tickets here.
