26 August – 18 September

“We’re a family…. If we leave together, noone is left behind”

Salil, a highly-successful businessman, has it all worked out: career, family, river-view des-res in Chiswick and a beautiful mistress. So why is he increasingly haunted by ghosts from the Old Country?

When the Thames bursts its banks and his family scramble to keep their heads above water, the very foundations of his perfect life are threatened and Salil is forced to look to both his future and his past for redemption.

Directed by Topher Campbell.

Commissioned and performed as part of the Oikos Project at The Jellyfish Theatre – an eye-opening temporary new venue built entirely from recycled and reclaimed materials by Berlin-based artist and architect Martin Kaltwasser, leading a team of volunteers, on Union Street SE1.

The Oikos Project was developed with support of the National Theatre Studio, the New Economics Foundation, UCL Environment institute, WebPlay, M3 Consulting, AKT part of WYG Engineering Ltd, Tipping Point, and Southwark Council. We acknowledge funding from Arts Council England and Unity Theatre Trust.
