The Time of Your Life archiveSet in 1939 as Europe plunges into war and America remains in the throes of the great depression, Nick's Pacific Street Saloon Bar, a seedy San Francisco waterfront honky-tonk, is a way-station welcoming lost souls of all kinds. Into Nick's world-in-a-barroom of marble-game machines, drunks, evil vice cops, and comically bad entertainers arrives Kitty Duvall, possibly an internationally renowned Burlesque dancer or possibly a 'two-dollar whore' (no one can be quite sure). While open-hearted, open-handed Joe sets up his flunky, Tom, to woo the angelic Kitty, he also helps a would-be dancer to fulfil his lifelong dream, while we meet a lovelorn young man searching for love at the end of a telephone, a longshoreman with the soul of a poet, slumming society swells, and a boozy old coot with a past that he makes up as he goes along, muttering in the corner about the abyss the world may fall into at any moment... A rich tapestry of human life, peopled by a profusion of wistful dreamers, pining lonely hearts, and beer-hall-philosophers. The first play to win both the New York Drama Critics Circle award and the Pulitzer Prize, The Time of Your Life is a twentieth century American masterpiece. Featuring the largest cast ever assembled at the Finborough Theatre. Performance length approx. 2 hours
