In just two years from 2017 to 2019, 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 verbatim audio performance, dramatising the tragic but true story of one young person's journey from an abusive childhood to a life on the streets of Bath - one of the most affluent cities in the UK.
Supported by the Arts Council, the Big Lottery and The Big Issue, Unknown has been written by Dougie Blaxland using the stories of seven people who have recent experience of homelessness: Sammy Clark, Nathan Dempster, Ian Duff, Paul Jones, Lloyd Rusdale and Anthony Williams.
Unknown is directed and produced by Moira Hunt and Shane Morgan of RoughHouse Theatre and features Dan Gaisford, Sabrina Laurison and Alex Stedman. All images by Lisa Hounsome.
