AND IN THE END is the real story of John Lennon — arguably our greatest pop cultural icon of the 20th century.

It’s 10.52pm on the night of December 8, 1980 at the Dakota Apartments in New York City. Five bone-chilling shots ring out. John Lennon has been shot! Struggling to stay alive, he finds himself caught in the vortex of his existence — somewhere between life and death. As his life flashes before him: Liverpool, Hamburg, The Beatles, his mother’s death, Yoko, May Pang, Cynthia, Julian, Sean, Bed-ins for Peace, solo years; Gatekeepers of the White Light help John confront the five stages of death: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. And in the end, John shows us that sometimes what lies beyond us matters less than what lies within us as he completes his journey through the tunnel to the Other Side in a touching and uplifting, often-funny conversation with Death.

AND IN THE END - The Death and Life of John Lennon starringValentine Pelka (Under the Tuscan Sun, The Pianist, The Highlander’sKronos) as John Lennon is a powerful, funny, poignant and captivating play by multiple Emmy award-winning writer/director, Alexander “Sandy” Marshall.

John Lennon's sister Julia Baird said, "It's the most accurate piece ever written on my brother's life." The on-target story is so powerful and revealing that Rod Davis of John Lennon's Original Quarrymen said, "After so many people have got John’s story’s great to see someone come along and finally get it right.”

The play received unanimous critical acclaim for the Edinburgh season: (Five Stars) “Hilarious and touching. This is the genuine article and a must for even the most casual Beatles observer.” The Irish Post.“Powerful… a thrilling experience… brilliantly conceived.” Daily Express. “Illuminating… a tremendous piece of work. Valentine Pelka is John Lennon.” BBC Radio Scotland.
