Rachel and Ben want to buy a flat in London. And so do their friends, Melanie and Sam. But what with rent, tax, student loans, pensions and bills, it’s impossible to save for a deposit.

So the foursome come up with a fast-track solution to the problem: live together. Sneakily split the rent and bills on a tiny one bedroom flat for a year. But with paper thin walls and space growing sparser by the day, which will they sacrifice first – the friendship, the relationship or the dream of buying their own property?

Matt Hartley’s Deposit throws a lively and topical spotlight on ‘Generation Rent’ and the lengths they will go to in order to get that first step on the property ladder. His theatre credits include the Bruntwood Award winning Sixty Five Miles (Paines Plough/ Hull Truck) and Horizon (National Theatre Connections).

 
The cast features Rupert Simonian (“Skyfall,” “The Constant Gardener”), Maggie Benedict, Yasmine Lever, and Graham Powell.
