News: Flood, Paper Creatures Theatre’s debut show

Paper Creatures Theatre present their debut production, Flood at the Tristan Bates Theatre as part of Camden Fringe Festival.

Adam is drowning. His small village has flooded and his loved ones have all moved closer to the capital in search of something better.

Stranded on an island of nostalgia, whiskey bottle in hand, Adam is forced to confront his future when those closest to him return after the death of his mother. Upon their arrival, repressed truths and unsettling secrets are revealed.

Flood is a complex and humane portrayal of a group of friends struggling to define themselves beyond the confines of their small town. When the water keeps rising, how do you stay afloat?

“Yes, Adam, we left. That’s what people do, eventually. That’s what everyone does.”

We at Paper Creatures Theatre have a clear mission: to tell simple, bold and compelling stories that hold up a mirror to the Millennial generation. Established this year, we wanted to be part of the new-writing revolution happening in London. And who better to tell stories about Millennials than Millennials themselves?

For our debut production we are excited to bring Flood to the Off-West End Tristan Bates Theatre for a one week run. We commissioned this new comedy-drama by Tom Hartwell because of our fascination with young people who want to escape their home towns for ‘something better’. We all know someone who is either stuck in the past, or constantly looking to the future. So we feel this is a story everyone can relate to.


Flood plays Tristan Bates Theatre from 31 July – 5 August 2017. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
