People of the Abyss

‘The question naturally arises, how do they live? The answer is that they do not live. They do not know what life is.’

Prodigal UPG with final year Acting CDT students blend performance-parkour with Charles Dickens, Jack London and contemporary political speakers on a journey into the dark heart of capitalism. Inspired by London’s undercover odyssey amongst the dispossessed of the East End, we’ll meet the people who cling to the slopes of the Abyss and fight never to fall all the way in.
