Stream All We Ever Wanted Was Everything on YouTube

By | Shows

For one week (and a bit) only, you can now stream a recording of our award-winning production of All We Ever Wanted Was Everything online.

Written by Luke Barnes, with music by James Frewer, this show tells the story of Leah and Chris, two ’90s kids from Hull who are promised the world.

But what happens when childhood dreams don’t become reality?

Set across three decades, from 1997’s Cool Britannia to Brexit Britain, amid the backdrop of an asteroid heading for Earth, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2017, before transferring to London’s Bush Theatre in 2018.

This recording is from a performance at The Welly Club during its original Hull run, in June 2017, as part of the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 programme, before it was adapted for conventional theatre spaces.

Stream it now until midnight on Friday 17 April.

If you enjoy the show we would hugely appreciate any donations you can make to our Hull Artists Coronavirus Fund, to support freelancers in the city who’ve lost work due to the pandemic.

The company of The Canary and the Crow has been nominated for three Off West End Theatre Awards, also known as the Offies, following its run at London’s Arcola Theatre.

The whole cast have been nominated for Best Performance Ensemble, while writer and performer Daniel Ward has been nominated for Best Performance Piece

Performer Laurie Jamieson has also been nominated for Best Supporting Performance in a Play.

The Offies were launched in 2011 to help raise the profile and status of independent theatres in London, by giving them greater power to promote their work individually and collectively and to reward the new talent that they nurture.

The awards cover a calendar year and the winners are announced in the spring of the following year.

In January 2020 Daniel Ward won a Writers’ Guild Award for Best Play for Young Audiences for The Canary and the Crow, while the show also won the Brighton Fringe Award for Excellence at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019.
