Flood

Flood

by James Phillips

One day it starts to rain and no-one knows why. And it doesn't stop. Far out on the North Sea a fisherman raises a girl in his net, miraculously alive from the deep sea. Is she one of the migrants now washing up on English shores? Or someone sent for some higher purpose?

Commissioned by Hull UK City of Culture 2017 this epic and extraordinary collaboration between multi-award-winning artists James Phillips and Slung Low is the culmination of a year-long project. Four parts told across three different mediums, this complete text includes four stunningly written dramas that ask fundamental questions about our future, our communities and our collective responsibilities.
