ABSOLUTE HELL

Absolute Hell, Rodney Ackland’s extraordinarily provocative play, was condemned as ‘a libel on the British people’ when first performed in 1952. Now it emerges as an intoxicating plunge into post-war Soho; full of despair and longing. Lying, fighting and seducing, these lost souls and bruised lovers struggle from the rubble of war towards an unknown future.
