Having written a blog on time travel for the last two years, Rosy Carrick presented a live account of her experiences to the stage for the first time. Combining video clips, music, photographs and even envelopes of ‘evidence’ given to audience members — and weaving a narrative path that covers the last 100 years and several continents — the scope of the show is ambitious.

The tone is similarly far-reaching, shifting throughout the hour as it covers Carrick’s love of Russian poet Mayakovsky and her global odyssey charting his history and work, details of her personal life from childhood to adulthood, correspondence with a time-travelling past self trapped in 1920s Russia, and countless references to 1980s pop culture.

These regular tonal shifts suit the show well. Presented as a “true story”, the suggestion that Carrick successfully achieved time travel does require a suspension of disbelief. However, this is helped by some disarmingly personal moments, which add authenticity. Then, the pop culture references and regular jokes ensure that proceedings never become too burdened with the tangly narrative or emotional charge of some moments.

Ultimately, the show itself has the feel of a poem; the accounts of time travel are necessarily complicated but whilst they do not lend themselves to a straight storyline they do implicitly touch on ideas such as fate, how the choices we make change our destinies, the multiplicity of past and future self and, perhaps most poignantly, on past hopes revisited. It will be worth following the show to see which path it takes next.
