Set in a post-apocalyptic world this student-run, original musical theatre production takes place after humankind has destroyed the surface of our planet. After several decades living in the darkness, humanity hasn't changed its ways. Touching on themes of gender inequality, caste discrimination and environmental awareness, The Surface warns us of what might be if we cannot learn to embrace our surroundings. In this world where the powerful are controlling and unjust, and where women are warriors and men are scavengers, who will come out on top? Who will reach The Surface?
