Europe After The Rain by Oliver Bennett
Mercury Playwriting Prize 2017 Winner, directed by Daniel Buckroyd
Europe After The Rain, is a darkly surreal and highly theatrical exploration of the world we live in now. It offers up a dark mirror to the concerns of contemporary Britain: immigration, enfranchisement, globalisation, loss and love.
Oliver Bennett trained as an actor at RADA. He has collaborated recently with the Belarus Free Theatre, whose work he has found inspirational. He has worked frequently with Howard Barker, Edward Bond, performing at Southwark Playhouse, Arcola, The Print Room, and in ‘Backbeat’ in the West End, Canada and LA.
