Simon Evans: The Work of The Devil

20:00, 05 - 31 Aug

Last year's show, Dressing for Dinner, earned Evans some of the most ecstatic reviews of his career including an unbeaten 4.5 stars from Chortle. This year he brings that show – renamed, evolved, tour-hardened and significantly more densely packed with insights, ironies and laughs – back to Assembly in triumph. Blending astonishing, life-changing revelations with excoriating, hilarious social critique: this is quite literally the show Evans's entire career has been leading up to. 'At the instant after copulation, the devils' laughter is heard.' (Arthur Schopenhauer). 'Jaw-dropping' ****1/2 ( 'Dynamite' **** (Times).
