In Floods by Greg Wohead

In Floods is a new show by Greg Wohead that takes the form of a live screenplay reading in which Greg fictionalises himself. Drawing from an interest in the act of crying and his experience returning to rural America for his grandparents’ back-to-back funerals, he leans into TV tropes, plays fast and loose with the truth and deals recklessly with his memories. 

With In Floods, Greg asks himself: can you go home again and who are you when you get there? What makes us, breaks us or sustains us as life gets more and more absurd? The responses to these questions play out through blinding light, total darkness, wild anecdotes, out of body experiences and lumps in the throat.  

In Floods is co-produced with Teatro do Bairro Alto, co-commissioned by Theatre in the Mill, Shoreditch Town Hall and Cambridge Junction with additional support from GIFT Festival and artsdepot. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. 

Greg returns to South Street after previously presenting acclaimed shows Hurtling, The Ted Bundy Project, Comeback Special & Call it a Day.
