Vault Festival 2016: Underground
It's so easy to feel alone, especially when you're stuck in a crowd
London’s biggest arts festival is returning: make your way underground for six weeks of creativity, innovation and chaos at Vault Festival. With more than 100 different shows spread across eight incredible venues, you're not going to find anything else like it above or below ground any time soon. Underground is a brand new, site-responsive comedy-drama written by Isla van Tricht, exploring the phenomenon of loneliness in a crowd.Claire and James take the same Tube to work, at the same time, every morning. Claire and James drink at the same pub with their same friends, every night. Claire and James have never met. But all that is about to change when, after matching on a familiar dating app, they 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. The show takes place in the Cavern space. Running time is approximately 1 hour.
"Sweetly inventive and brazenly original.”
