Set in a boarding house on the bleak Cumbrian coast, "Imagine Drowning" is a compelling drama of secrecy, violence, and discovery, at once frightening and funny. A journalist disappears while covering a protest at Sellafield. When his wife sets out to find him two weeks later, she stays at the same guesthouse and encounters the same bizarre collection of characters, including the wife of a mass murderer, an ex-astronaut beach bum, and a wheelchair-bound activist. As two intricate plots and time schemes intertwine, David and Jane find answers to some of their questions, while the boarding house reveals a dark and intimate horror.
"Johnson has managed to produce theatre which doesn't so much reflect contemporary issues as turn them into something rich and strange ... it's a brilliant piece of theatre."
"A highly entertaining evening of dark and bilious comedy, mystery, and suspense."
