The Under Room
by Edward Bond
29 Oct - 14 Nov
five.point.one presents the Australian premiere of Edward Bond's The Under Room
An intricate and claustrophobic story of betrayal.
A city suburb, 2077.
Joan discovers a stranger from a foreign land in her flat. She demands an explanation. Outside, soldiers patrol the streets.
The stranger's story changes her life forever. Joan realises she too is an immigrant; an immigrant in her own country. They seek a solution to their problem.
Jack can offer them a new identity, a pass and a passage across the border to the North. But who is Jack and where will this transaction take them? What follows is a journey of self-discovery and denial for all concerned.
Profound, electrifyingly dramatic, tragic and comic, this is the Australian premiere of The Under Room written by acclaimed U.K. playwright, Edward Bond.
