The Divide, presented in two parts, is a tale that unflinchingly explores a dystopian society of repression, insurrection and forbidden love. Directed by Annabel Bolton, the play comes to the Old Vic in London for a limited run.
Set a century in the future in the wake of a deadly contagion which has decimated the English population and rendered contact between men and women fatal, adult survivors are segregated by gender. 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.
