Unknown is a compelling, hard hitting drama that tells the painfully true and profoundly moving story of a young man’s struggle to survive living on the streets of the UK.
In just two years, from 2019 to 2021, more than 800 people died living and sleeping rough on the streets of the UK – a significant number of them have never been identified or named. Unknown is a critically acclaimed, hard hitting drama that explores the stark reality of life on the streets of our cities by telling the tragically true and compelling story of one young person’s journey from an abusive childhood to a life of homelessness and social invisibility.
Written and developed by the team that won The National Campaign for the Arts 2021 Award for Best Arts Project, Unknown was created in collaboration with six members of Bath and Bristol’s homeless communities. Described by The Guardian as “intimate, extremely moving and [with] wonderful performances”, Unknown is an exciting, dynamic and innovative piece of modern theatre.
