From peak hour traffic to mind-numbing jobs, we all have our own everyday circles of hell to contend with. Which is perhaps why Dante's Inferno, the first part of an epic poem by Dante Alighieri, dating back to the 14th Century, still remains so relevant to modern audiences.

Fortunately for London theatre-goers, this 700-year-old masterpiece is about to have its most innovative reworking yet, when Craft Theatre presents in nine performances over four weeks, just as the British summer slides squarely into autumn.


represents a new, fearless and physically grounded telling of Alighieri's timeless classic, promising to shine fresh light on the challenges and moral crises we all face in our daily lives.

Craft Theatre draws upon diverse techniques from fields including cognitive neuroscience and sociology to create compelling works in which the focus is upon heightening emotional authenticity and depth – that is, by keeping the actor present, and telling stories with integrity. According to Bargain Theatreland , the collaborative process used by Craft Theatre produces performances which offer 'a gut wrenching pummel to the core base, primal senses of human emotion'.


In a sad but ironic twist, those working on the retelling of this classic tale have experienced their own considerable trials and tribulations. Back in January 2015, a few days prior to the debut of , Craft Theatre suffered a significant loss when actor Kan Bonfils died during rehearsal. is thus the highly anticipated reworking of this timeless tale.

In addition to the nine performances at The Hive , will also be performed (as a double, with the one-woman show The Diver ) through Sutton Theatres on October 16 and 17.
