The Last Quiz Night on Earth

A new play by Alison Carr

23 February – 3 April 2022

“The end of the world quiz waits for no man, literally. Onwards ever onwards to our fiery decline. Round Three…”

It’s the end of the world. The last night on earth. An asteroid is heading straight for us. Fancy going out with a bang?

It’s the final countdown. Landlady Kathy invites you to the last quiz night on earth with Quizmaster Rav. He’s the host with the most. But with time ticking, some unexpected guests turn up out of the blue. Bobby wants to settle old scores and Fran wants one last shot at love. Expect the unexpected to the bitter end.

Following two sold out tours of Chip Shop Chips, Box of Tricks is back with a bang in your local with Alison Carr’s explosive pre-apocalyptic comedy The Last Quiz Night on Earth. So grab a drink and join us for a night you won’t forget with plenty of drama. Let’s get quizzical, quizzical!

Named amongst Guardian’s Best of Culture 2020 & Readers’ Favourite Theatre of the Year

Supported by:

“Simple but innovative... The Last Quiz Night on Earth is a fantastic night down the pub and at the theatre and was a joy to experience.”
★★★★ North West End (2020 Tour)
“A well-executed piece of drama that is forged seamlessly around an actual quiz... holds up a mirror to human emotions and frailties... With an excellent blend of humour, pathos and quiz-mastery this is a good story, well told. It is a gem of a show. ”
★★★★ Quays Life (2020 Tour)
“A fun, innovative slice of a theatre, packed full of comedic set pieces, great one liners and a pinch of high drama... The cast are on fine form... all four have great chemistry... The Last Quiz Night On Earth is a fun, entertaining night out.”
★★★★ Opening Night (2020 Tour)
