Forced Entertainment is to take To Move in Time, a monologue written by Tim Etchells for Tyrone Huggins, on a short tour in 2020.

The production, which ran at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2019, features an unnamed protagonist speculating about what he would do if he were able to travel backwards and forwards in time.

The text is “an unfolding, compulsive thought process” which involves fantasies of changing the present, obsessions with everyday events in the past and dreaming up ways to get rich from knowledge of the future.

Huggins played Thomas in Testament’s Black Men Walking, an Eclipse Theatre Company presentation at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs in 2018, and also appeared in Opening Skinner’s Box, based on the book by Lauren Slater and adapted by Improbable at Northern Stage, Newcastle in 2016.

Forced Entertainment will tour To Move in Time to Chapter, Cardiff on 4 and 5 February. It will then visit Sheffield Theatres, Birmingham REP, Exeter Phoenix and Arnolfini, Bristol until 22 February.
