This autumn, don’t miss Slung Low’s site-specific production Flood.

Performed live on a floating stage in Victoria Dock, Flood ‘is a feat of logistics likely to stand as one of the highlights of the year’ (The Guardian).

Join us this October for an epic omnibus evening performed live on a floating stage in Hull’s Victoria Dock. Start the journey by watching Flood: From the Sea (Part 1), a short film, online and then join us for the omnibus evening.

Your ticket will include:

Experience Flood: Abundance (Part 2), a live play at 7pm.
One day it starts to rain and no-one knows why. And it doesn’t stop. Far out on the North Sea a fisherman raises a girl in his net, miraculously alive from the deep sea. Is she one of the migrants now washing up on English shores? Or someone sent for some higher purpose?

Watching a screening of Flood: To the Sea (Part 3), the TV episode filmed in Hull and shown previously on BBC Two.

Finish the evening by enjoying Flood: A New World (Part 4), a live play at 9:15pm.

We’re delighted to be joined by Hull Pie & Shoot the Bull who will be providing delicious food available to buy during the interval.

The evening will last approximately 3hrs 30 mins including one interval of 40 minutes.

Flood is an extraordinary year-long epic commissioned for Hull 2017 that will be told online, live in Hull and on BBC television. It is created by the ground-breaking Leeds-based theatre company Slung Low, directed by artistic director Alan Lane and written by award-winning playwright James Phillips.
