So, rumor has it that the world is going end this year (again). Now, who is going to rescue us from complete and utter annihilation?

In his production, I Love You but We Only Have Fourteen Minutes to Save the Earth, award-winning director Nathan Evans presents three artists, all of which have only 14 minutes to save the world - the only question is how?

The three artists featured in the London show are 'avant guardian angel', David Hoyle, the 'reigning alternative Miss World', Fancy Chance and 'eco worrier extraordinaire', Timberlina. 

Speaking about the development of the show, Nathan Evans says: ‘I came up with the idea for this project when I discovered the TED Talks, which challenge the world’s "inspired thinkers" give the "talk of their lives" in 18 minutes.

'I was seeking a way to give artists a guiding time frame and concept to produce a performance when Dale Arden’s voice popped into my head hollering "Flash! I love you but we only have 14 hours to save the earth!" and I had it' 

After positive previews in London and Manchester last year, I Love You but We Only Have Fourteen Minutes to Save the Earth returns to London for a limited run from 4 to 7 July at the Soho Theatre, before performing at one of Britain’s largest music festivals, Latitude. 

The show, which has already been described by The Erotic Review as ‘fast-paced, thought-provoking and extremely entertaining’ and ‘a happy dose of queer cabaret’ by The Guardian, also features cinematic film pieces devised by actor and activist Bette Bourne and video artiste Kate Pelling.

Tickets are priced between £10 ($16 €12) and £15 ($24 €19).
