Started off like any other day, the odd drop here and there. Then around lunchtime, there’s this huge downpour.

Adam is drowning. His small village has flooded and his loved ones have all moved closer to the capital in search of something better. 

Stranded on an island of nostalgia, whiskey bottle in hand, Adam is forced to confront his future when those closest to him return after the death of his Mum. Upon their arrival, repressed truths and unsettling secrets are revealed. ‘Flood’ is a complex and humane portrayal of a group of friends struggling to define themselves beyond the confines of their small town.

When the water keeps rising, how do you stay afloat?

This new comedy drama by playwright Tom Hartwell is Paper Creatures Theatre’s debut production. Flood wasperformed as part of the Camden Fringe 2017.
