Imagine it’s raining outside.
Imagine it’s raining outside, and it has been raining for three days.
But we’re in here. We’re together. Talking.
And something is about to happen. Something is definitely about to happen…

In 2015 Callum had just graduated from Lancaster University, he was living in a small damp flat and he was working at Wetherspoons. In December it rained for three days, the River Lune burst its banks, a power station flooded and there was a blackout that lasted 72 hours.

On the second night, Callum met with friends and, in the darkness, they made a pot of stew over a gas camping stove lent by a neighbour.

A story about togetherness, power and imagined utopias, Desmond’s Republic sees performer Callum Berridge weave together truth and fiction as he and the audience make a pot of stew to share together in the darkness.

Callum tweets:

its about storms and cooking and memory and friends
