Welcome to the Community, a vast underground society populated by the last one thousand humans on earth. The surface has been reduced to an irradiated wasteland and these poor souls are confined to a harsh underground life in order to escape it. It is a brutal and unforgiving place where freedom of thought has been eradicated, mandatory euthanasia is a normal part of life and birthday cakes are strictly prohibited. In spite of these challenges humanity endures, clinging to the faded hope that one day they may see the surface of the world that their ancestors were forced to abandon. Gael van den Bossche's new dark comedy explores the lives and struggles of the people who live in this bleak state. How much must we sacrifice in the name of survival and when does it stop being worth it? How can we continue in the face of the meaninglessness and absurdity of our existence? Does thinking about it only make it worse? After a highly successful run at the Camden Fringe, The Community transfers to the Stockwell Playhouse for a two-night run.
