Watch Rhiannon Faith Company's DROWNTOWN LOCKDOWN, a prologue to the stage production, DROWNTOWN.

Age guidance: 15+ due to strong language, and themes of isolation, depression and suicide

Rhiannon Faith Company launches DROWNTOWN LOCKDOWN, a new 15-minute film which acts as an online prologue to the stage production of DROWNTOWN which was scheduled to be performed in June and July in The Pit, Barbican.

Instead of going to the theatre, audiences now meet the play’s characters in their own homes before they leave for the beach depicted in DROWNTOWN. Loneliness, involuntary isolation and the difficulty of leaving the house are all sensitively explored in this poignant, specially created complementary show.

The launch screening of DROWNTOWN LOCKDOWN is followed by a trailer for the stage show and a Q&A discussion with Rhiannon Faith, the film’s director Adam Sheldon and cast members. DROWNTOWN LOCKDOWN also includes a series of creative task video workshops available to the public. Entitled #VIRUSVULNERABILITIES, they will guide and support people to make their own digital contributions around the themes of the show.

Presented in partnership with the Barbican
