'A black comedy about white terror, 'Delectable Shelter' is a no-holds-barred portrait of the privileged, facing the end of the world as they know it.
'In a bunker deep within the earth, five survivors plan a utopian society. Their dreams are lavish, their visions grand and their aspirations (somewhat) noble. But saving the world is the easy part; the hard part will be learning to share it with those they thought were beneath them.
'Taking cues from Moliere, Brecht and Chris Morris, 'Delectable Shelter' lampoons the prejudice ingrained in our prosperous Western society as it declines from dominance in the 21st Century in a grotesque comedy of the not-too-distant future.
'A new play from multi-award winning theatre renegades The Hayloft Project and Critical Stages, 'Delectable Shelter' is a laugh-out-loud funny production that speaks directly to our modern society in a sharply clever way.' (Publisher's blurb)
