A Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch production
The Flood by Vickie Donoghue
‘There was before the flood and after the flood…’
January 1953. A party. Swing dancing to the big band. Opening night of the War Memorial Hall, Canvey Island. The storm approaches. A group of friends will need to put aside secrets in order to survive…
January 2013. A ropey-looking buffet. 50s records. A tea and dance to remember. Friends who need each other more than ever. But will they realise before it’s too late…
January 2053. A chance to return to the Hall for one last time, despite danger, to make sense of what happened. Is the truth finally coming out, or is the past best left buried…
Based on real-life events, this world premiere production of an extraordinarily tender and timely play is about calling a place home – and what that really means.
