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 turn to for help? RECLAIMED places the audience right in the heart of a fictional village under siege.
RECLAIMED brings the 2013/14 flooding crisis to life in a story inspired by true events.
“Director, Jesse Briton, and the whole Wassail cast and crew have put together a truly powerful show that’s captivating, challenging, emotional and funny. It doesn’t shy away from controversial issues and handles them with sensitivity, humour and humility. You feel privileged to be part of the audience and part of those memories that’ve been shared by the people of Somerset who lived through the devastation. We’d see the show again in a heartbeat.” – Somersetcool
