After the critically acclaimed success of Bound last year in The Vault, the show returns for a special one-off performance.
Six actors, five chairs, one table and an ocean…
Bound follows the fortunes of six trawlermen from Devon as they embark on one final voyage. Compelled by the threat of bankruptcy, fishing trawler ‘The Violet’ is forced out into treacherous weather. Competing against the overpowering force of nature, the tribulations of life with the opposite sex and each other’s egos, will they lose more than a way of life?
★★★★★ ”It’s one of the most accomplished pieces of debut playwriting that I’ve seen in a long time. The six-strong cast create fascinatingly detailed characters… Briton directs his own work to perfection. A canny film producer could do worse than look into the rights. It’s that good’ Evening Standard
★★★★★ ‘Southwark Playhouse’s inimitable, dank vault provides the perfect setting… The six-strong cast is sensational throughout… the venue’s acoustics lend themselves marvellously to the wistful, note-perfect singing of old sea shanties… a compelling and moving piece of theatre’ Whatsonstage
‘bursting with fresh talent’ The Times
‘an emotional storm’ The Telegraph
‘beautifully thought-out piece of work… performed with real dynamism.’ The Guardian
