Lent Week 4
What if beauty wasn't a gift? What if radiance was a disease? 'The Drowned World' is one of the most exciting plays of the 21st century and explores a dystopian future where the 'cowardly,' and 'graceless' rule, and where the eradication of beauty is their goal. 'The Drowned World' addresses questions about the nature of persecution, torture and living in an authoritarian state. But at the same time, it is personal, questioning whether love and humanity can survive in extreme circumstances.
Written in 2002, Gary Owen's play won the George Devine award and a Fringe First. 'The Drowned World' promises to be a stunning and unmissable piece of theatre.
