JUN 14, 2017 - JUL 2, 2017
Shrapnel Theatre & Hartshorn - Hook Foundation presents
by Isla van Tricht
Directed by Kate Tiernan
with Michael Jinks, Andrew McDonald, and Bebe Sanders
Following its London premiere, Isla van Tricht's comedy-drama Underground
comes hurtling into NYC.
After matching on a dating app, Claire and James meet for an awkward first date. On their way home together, the brand new Night Tube breaks down.
Forced to get to know each other a little better, things start to get weird. Featuring an interfering tannoy system, a wise - if drunk - pub landlord, and a big swipe right, Underground
looks at the phenomenon of loneliness in a crowd, and what happens when the daily grind gets disrupted.
Please note that herbal cigarettes will be in use during this performance.
