Surfacing
  • Vault Festival

NHS therapist Luc is fine. Honest. Shes definitely not overwhelmed by meeting Owen, a new client, definitely not freaked out by what shes started seeing, definitely doesnt think her reality has been punctured and something else is leaking in. Luc goes for a swim and feels a hand dragging her down to the bottom of the lake...When she surfaces, her reality is different. Shes haunted by tormented mice, shape-shifting people, and secrets she thought shed buried.In this breath-taking new two-hander, motion sensor tech combines with motion-responsive video design and composition to create a contemporary Through the Looking Glass world. All performances relaxed, audiodescribed and captioned.SURFACING is a new play by Tom Powell, 2021 Papatango Prize winner (A modest masterpiece " The Stage), directed by RTST Sir Peter Hall Award 2022 winner Stephen Bailey, their first collaboration since , Offie-nominated Little Echoes. Performed by Rosie Gray (Barrel Organ & Olivier Award winner for The Old Bridge) and Daniel Rainford (Private Peaceful & Once Upon a Time in Nazi Occupied Tunisia). After Little Echoes.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
