Deposit at the Hampstead Theatre – Downstairs
Hampstead Theatre, Eton Avenue, Swiss Cottage, London, NW3 3EU
Hampstead Theatre presents Matt Hartley’s Deposit, a Hampstead Downstairs Original
Directed by Lisa Spirling, Deposit throws a lively and topical spotlight on ‘Generation Rent’ and the lengths they will go to in order to get that first step on the property ladder.
Deposit will run on 11 May 2017 until 12 June 2017 at Hampstead Theatre.
Rachel and Ben want to buy a flat in London. And so do their friends, Melanie and Sam. But what with rent, tax, student loans and bills, it’s impossible to save for a deposit.
So the foursome comes up with a fast-track solution to the problem: live together. Sneakily split the rent and bills on a tiny one bedroom flat for a year. But with paper thin walls and space growing sparser by the day, which will they sacrifice first – the friendship, the relationship or the dream of buying their own property?
The cast features Ben Addis, Karl Davies, Nicola Kavanagh and Natalie Dew.
Written by Matt Hartley, directed by Lisa Spirling, design by Polly Sullivan, lighting by Johannah Town and sound by Richard Hammarton.
