The Divide

The Divide, presented in two parts, is a tale that unflinchingly explores a dystopian society of repression, insurrection and forbidden love. The show is directed by Annabel Bolton, an Associate Director of The Old Vic.

The Divide is set in the aftermath of a deadly contagion which, a century from now, has decimated the English population and rendered contact between men and women fatal. Under the dictates of an elusive Preacher, an unthinkable solution is enforced. Separated by the Divide, the adult survivors are segregated by gender, as men wear white as a mark of their purity, and women – still infected – are clothed in black as a sign of their sin.

Brother and sister Elihu (Jake Davies) and Soween (Erin Doherty) grow up learning the ways of their tightly controlled society. As they begin to glimpse the cracks in the system, Elihu falls for Giella (Weruche Opia), the daughter of two radical mothers, risking fatal disease and threatening to ignite a bloody revolution. The Divide is a vision of a dystopian future defined by brutal repression and forbidden love.

Discover The Old Vic

EXPERIENCE THE PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE AT THE OLD VIC.

Under the artistic direction of Matthew Warchus, The Old Vic presents an exciting and eclectic programme of new writing, classic plays, musicals, dance and variety.

With a unique sense of event at every performance, this 200 year old building is one of London’s best-loved and oldest theatres. Located just a stone's throw away from Waterloo Station, the theatre has had a fascinating history with several incarnations - including being the original home of the National Theatre of Great Britain before it found it's permanent spot on the South Bank. The venue made headlines when it announced in 2003 that Kevin Spacey would become Artistic Director, being succeeded by Matthew Warchus in 2015.

Today The Old Vic acknowledges it's deep theatrical roots whilst focusing on invigorating new writing with works that engage in diverse conversation.
