The Bunker: Morgana and Agamemnon

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Direct from the Edinburgh Festival, two plays from The Bunker Trilogy come to London for a four week run in an immersive experience from the producer of Belt Up Theatre.

Enter the trenches of World War One.

Morgana is inspired by the Arthurian Legend. On the reserve lines in France, three young soldiers in search of distraction and delight find more than they bargained for in the beautiful, mysterious and mystical Morgana Le Fay. As time passes with stories of adventures and battles lost and won, a dark and mysterious power haunts the trenches taunting the brave knights with thoughts of home, of their schooldays, of the girls and lives they've left behind – for King and country.

Agamemnon is an intense re-imagining of the Ancient Greek Legend. Journey into the delusions of a shell shocked solider who is devastated by war, cut off from help and convinced of a plot to bring him down. Bloodied and wounded he dreams of his return to England. As the darkness descends and the enemy mounts its final attack, only one thought haunts Agamemnon, 'What is there to live for?'

The Bunker is an immersive reimagining of classic legends, rediscovered in a dugout at the heart of the Great War. From acclaimed writer Jamie Wilkes (Belt Up Theatre's The Tartuffe and Metamorphosis), composer Jonny Sims (assistant composer on BBC's Merlin) and director and producer Jethro Compton (Belt Up Theatre's The Boy James, Outland and Macbeth).
