One Under

Performed from Thu 31 Oct — Fri 1 Nov


“Captioning and audio description are creatively incorporated into a bold revival of Winsome Pinnock's play about the need for atonement” The Stage

Sonny and Christine want to escape. They have a night to remember but underneath the surface things aren’t what they seem. Cyrus is frantically trying to piece together the truth about that night. Unexpectedly a tragedy is about to unite them all…
An evocative thriller of intertwining stories, One Under explores the unanswered questions left behind when someone vanishes from our lives.

A brand new version of the 2005 play by award-winning writer Winsome Pinnock and directed by Amit Sharma (The Solid Life of Sugar Water, Cosmic Scallies), this powerful story explores human relationships and sparks pertinent, timely conversations on mental health and well-being.

Graeae is a world renowned innovator in theatre and its productions place creative access at their heart. This play will feature a creative use of captioning and will have audio description on offer at every performance (ask the Box Office for details).

4-stars “One Under is a keenly enjoyable experience – and being brave enough to leave parts of the story untold pushes this drama into a different league. Complex and darkly satisfying, One Under proves that when drama moves beyond formula, anything can happen.” The Spy in the Stalls

Captioning and audio description are creatively incorporated into a bold revival of Winsome Pinnock's play about the need for atonement.

The Stage

Guilt and penance, paranoia, hidden disability, personality and uncertainty shift and reshape as 95 minutes scurries past… a brave re-imagining and revival of Alfred Fagon award-winner Winsome Pinnock’s 2005 short play.
