Britain, the near future. Much of the country is underwater and life is radically restricted. In a remote rural outpost of the state, male soldiers patrol the moors looking for those defying restrictions whilst the women try to grow crops to feed them. The struggle for survival intensifies when overseas wars come closer to home and their world threatens to implode.
Ditch received its world premiere at the HighTide Festival in 2010 and transferred to the Old Vic Tunnels for a six week run in a production directed by Richard Twyman. The play was shortlisted for the John Whiting Award.
