The Community


Stockwell-Playhouse-Poster-3.jpg

Welcome to the Community, a vast underground society populated by the last one thousand
humans on earth. The surface has been reduced to an irradiated wasteland and these poor souls
are confined to a harsh underground life in order to escape it. It is a brutal and unforgiving place
where freedom of thought has been eradicated, mandatory euthanasia is a normal part of life and
birthday cakes are strictly prohibited. In spite of these challenges humanity endures, clinging to the
faded hope that one day they may see the surface of the world that their ancestors were forced to
abandon.

Gaël van den Bossche's new dark comedy explores the lives and struggles of the people who live
in this bleak state. How much must we sacrifice in the name of survival and when does it stop
being worth it? How can we continue in the face of the meaninglessness and absurdity of our
existence? Does thinking about it only make it worse?
