WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It's the start of the Blitz, and while the East End poor are relentlessly bombed, the richest in society enjoy the protection of ?luxury' bomb-proof bunkers. Matt Morrison's play is based on the extraordinary night when The Savoy Hotel was invaded by those protesting against the inequality of suffering at a time of national crisis.
World Premiere. The Shelter is about class, money and political power - all as relevant today as they were in 1940 - and has been researched and developed in collaboration with students on our Three Year Acting Course as part of LAMDA's New Writing Programme. Please note, this production contains some strong language.
