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.
