Enter a hidden world that lurks below the London city streets, where fallen angels, monsters and magic are real and an ordinary businessman can become a hero. Based on the cult classic novel by sci-fi and fantasy master Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew, whose mundane life is changed forever when he encounters a young woman in distress named Door. His attempt to help her leads him to the parallel world of London Below, where all kinds of fantastic creatures make their home. On the run from deadly assassins, Richard and Door must make their way across the deadly darkness of Night's Bridge and through the weird and wonderful communities of London Below in search of the Angel Islington, who will help them ... for a price. Rorschach Theatre's production brings Gaiman's metropolitan wonderland to brilliant and colorful life on stage at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.
