Wassail Theatre’s Reclaimed

“The water is rising
The floods are here”

It had been an ordinary January day.

That is until an extraordinary thing happened: the water came and it didn’t go away. The community had been told to evacuate their homes and meet at the highest, safest point: the village hall.

What happens when a community is in crisis? When tragedy is moments away and when your loved ones are nowhere to be seen, who do you ask for help?

RECLAIMED places the audience in the heart of a fictional village under siege. Somerset’s Wassail Theatre Company (REX THE KING, THE SOMERSET CHARABANC) has been working closely with the people, communities and organisations impacted by the 2013/14 floods of The Somerset Levels to create RECLAIMED.

The final show is inspired by true events.
