The Lower Depths

The Lower Depths

3 (2) · Fringe Theatre, Contemporary

“The truth is a blade that can turn.”

Overview

Out of sight and out of mind, Russia’s lost souls spend their days in squalor. Hope can be found in a drink or a dream. But when reality is ignored, how can it be changed?

Visceral, fierce, stark and often funny, The Lower Depths pushes at the limits of the human spirit and reveals a society at breaking point.

Having shocked audiences right across Europe, Maxim Gorky’s masterful portrait of the disenfranchised and left-behind became one of the most celebrated and influential plays of the 20th century.
