Coming soon!

In the aftermath of war, six characters go on a strange and mysterious journey – descending underground...


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!

A co-production with Purbanat Theatre

We are planning to stage Descent in March-April 2020. Watch this space for more details.
