2010

Ditch takes place in the near future as much of the country is underwater and the government has been reduced to a group of fascist strongmen.

Written by Beth Steel, and produced as a world premiere for the High Tide Festival, Ditch transferred to The Old Vic Tunnels as the first of The Old Vic major productions in the new space.

In a rural outpost of the state, men and woman struggle to build a community, and to retain a semblance of civility in the face of the encroaching wilderness and the inevitable onset of global war.

    'I’ve listened to all the stories of my generation, then watched ’em get sick or fade away. And it wasn’t this world that killed ’em. It was the other … the memory of it'.
Ditch is a clear-eyed look at how we might behave when the conveniences of our civilisation are taken away, and a frightening vision of a future.

Director: Richard Twyman
Producers: Steven Atkinson, Samuel Hodges, Nate Sence

High Tide Festival: 29 April - 3 May 2010
Old Vic Tunnels: 13 May - 26 June 2010
