A storm is coming…

The groundbreaking National Youth Theatre of Great Britain, the first youth theatre in the world, has helped launch the careers of some of the UK’s top actors, including Dame Helen Mirren, Daniel Craig, Orlando Bloom and Colin Firth. In 2018, the National Youth Theatre makes its Hong Kong debut with the brand new dystopian work FLOOD, a collaborative production with Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation and ArtisTree.

FLOOD sees a group of young people trying to survive in an inhospitable landscape; the city they called home now sits beneath the sea, with tips of tower blocks jutting out. Following their journey through sunken lands, FLOOD is a warning, and a clarion call for young people demanding environmental change, that the older generation has a responsibility to leave a planet that is healthy and habitable by all species for future generations.

“And so we gathered ourselves
Happy only in that we were not alone
As we set off
Into the watery unknown”.

**This show runs for 70 minutes with no intermission. Latecomers will not be admitted after the latecomers point.
