Ollie’s sister is missing. Searching Manchester in desperation, she finds all roads lead to Pomona – an abandoned concrete island at the heart of the city. Here at the centre of everything, journeys end and nightmares are born.

A sinister and surreal thriller from Alistair McDowall, Pomona received its professional premiere at the Orange Tree Theatre, London, on 12 November 2014 in a critically acclaimed production that brought widespread praise for the theatre and the playwright. Of that first production, The Independent wrote that the play was ‘Brilliantly creepy and compelling, [it] darts back and forth in time and disorientingly blurs the divide between horror games and a much more nightmarish reality . . . The piece remains forever slippery about recognising evil, challenging us with the moral ambiguities of its Mobius strip nature.’
