Descent                      by David Calcutt and Sarah Sayeed

Tickets now available

June 30th - July 12th 2020


The Lampworks, 3 Key Hill Drive, Birmingham B18 5NY

In the aftermath of war, six characters go on a strange and mysterious journey – descending underground, through an old abandoned bunker.

They are haunted by visions, and ghosts of the past. The things they have done, the things they have gone through, the things they have seen. Can they rebuild their lives?

Their journey ends in a strange encounter - and a dreamlike vision of the Earth reborn …

The production of Descent is a unique and immersive experience 


It is set in the Lampworks, a former factory building in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.


The audience will move around the space, following the characters on their “journey” through different locations.


The production of Descent is visually stunning - combining drama, music, dance, and film.


Don’t miss this extraordinary, unforgettable theatrical event!
