There’s an uncanny presence on Joe and Kitty’s farm. Precious feed is mysteriously disappearing from the hayshed and prized livestock is being slaughtered at night whilst sinister shadows lurk in the darkness.
With fodder running out and no money left, Joe and Kitty, like their desperate neighbours, will stop at nothing to protect themselves and their cherished land. But at what cost?
Fiona Doyle presents a deeply provocative thriller set in a blighted landscape, where nature is fiercely taking its course and it’s becoming a question of survival of the fittest.Deluge won the Eamon Keane Full-length Play Award in 2014. Her theatre credits include winner of the 2014 Paptango New Writing Prize, Coolatully (Finborough Theatre) andRootbound (Arcola).
Anna Ledwich returns to Hampstead Downstairs following Olivier nominated Four Minutes Twelve Seconds last year and The Empty Quarter in 2013.
