About The Flood

An epic story of friendship across 100 years ‘There was before the flood and after the flood…‎’ January 1953. A party. Swing dancing to the big band. Opening night of the War Memorial Hall, Canvey Island.‎ The storm approaches. A group of friends will need to put aside secrets in order to survive… January 2022. A ropey-looking buffet. 50s records. A tea and dance to remember. Friends who need each other more than ever. But will they realise before it’s too late… January 2053. A chance to return to the Hall for one last time, despite danger, to make sense of what ‎happened. Is the truth finally coming out, or is the past best left buried… Based on real-life events, this world premiere production of an extraordinarily tender and timely play is about calling‎ a place home – and what that really means.
