The Eternal Not

by Lucinda Coxon

National Theatre May – July 2009

Lucinda Coxon’s intelligent response to All’s Well That Ends Well. Lyn Gardner, Guardian

Is it too much to ask of a tiny baby, to hold two grown-ups together?

A young married couple await the arrival of their first child: he wants to disappear forever, she has a gift for patience – it’s little wonder the baby’s taking its time.

The Eternal Not depicts a darkly comic pursuit of eternal bliss.
