The Flood is set in the bloody battlefields of WW1 and premiered in a small previously unused cellar space below Summerhall at the 2014 Edinburgh Festival. It recreates the unimaginable horror of the conflict with an explicit depiction of the slaughter of millions of soldiers torn from their ordinary lives to fight in perhaps the most hellishly filthily squalid conditions and daily terror endured by man. A parallel love story explores the devastating effects on the women who loved those men. As the insanity of the war intensifies, it follows an emerging relationship between a front line infantryman and the woman whose love gives him hope. The drama switches between the visceral horror of war and their increasingly passionate, yet ultimately tragic love affair.
