At the edge of a city, near the end of autumn, a group of people, struggling to survive the hardships of daily living, spends nights at a rental lodge for the poor. Among them we find a pot-mender, a busker, a thief, a retired actor, a prostitute, etc. They drink to pass the days. Some of them have long given up on life while others hold on to unrealistic dreams. One day, an old man arrives. He seems to stir up new hopes in the hearts of these people who dwell at the lowest rungs of society. Or are these hopes merely the greatest lies in life?

Adapted from Russian playwright Maxim Gorky's most influential work, Nine Years Theatre brings you The Lower Depths - a play that looks at human dignity and the meaning of life through the stories of those at the lowest level of society.
