The Abyss is a Devon based theatre company committed to developing ‘theatre poetry’, contemporary plays that are written in verse and poetic prose. We create theatre poetry, both aurally and visually. We aim to bring contemporary dramatic verse as an experience to as wide an audience as possible. We are, as far as we know, the only theatre company in this country dedicated to developing this form.

The Divine Comedy by Dante

The Abyss Theatre Company are spending the winter and spring months descending into the Inferno, getting lost in Purgatory and eventually emerging into Paradise.  At the end of June, we invite you to join us for a last supper on The Sharpham Estate followed by decadence, danger, adventure, temptation and eventual enlightenment . Be you damned or  saved, saint or sinner, all are welcome.
