The Deep

  • The Old Fire Station 40 George Street Oxford, England, OX1 2AQ United Kingdom (map)

A day in the life of one man and the fishing community that sustains him. A day in which he must face his fears and desires in a desperate attempt to survive amongst the ice-cold waters off the coast of Iceland.

Based on a remarkable true story, Presence Theatre returns to explore The Deep after a reading at the Embassy of Iceland in London. Samuel Edward-Cook performs the solo role supported by an immersive soundscape.

Ages 14+. 1 hour. This is a work in progress. In the OFS Studio. £5.

Tickets for Offbeat shows are available from both the Oxford Playhouse and Old Fire Station. If one seems to be sold out, please check the other - they may have tickets available!

"A direct and fully felt performance ... Samuel Edward-Cook shares this fisherman’s difficult journey with every one of his audience, creating powerful theatre ... an impressive achievement." British Theatre Guide
