In 1943, in the midst of World War II, on the third floor of a quayside hotel, Noel Lennon shaves. In a moment’s time, he will be buried alive.


BURIED, a monologue based on a true story, borrows from this notion - a person drowning sees their life flash before them.

In WW2, 1943, north of Salerno, Italy, German frogmen mine a British munition’s ship; it explodes, collapsing a nearby hotel. Noel is buried alive. Three days later, American soldiers search the rubble for corpses. Noel Lennon, re-baptised as Max Spencer, is the father of BURIED’s writer, David Spencer. James Demaine, its actor, is his real Grandson.

A harrowing true story, a truthful examination of the human condition and a non-linear, groundbreaking anti-war play – BURIED comes from twice Verity Bargate award winning international writer, David Spencer.
