"Few American theaters can do this kind of thing - with such imagination, dignity, humor and judicious restraint - quite like the master storytellers at Lifeline. "  –Chicago Tribune
"Watching the lavish artistry and endless imagination now at play in Lifeline Theatre's world premiere production of 'Neverwhere'... it is easy to see why Lifeline recently racked up 14 non-Equity Jeff nominations. The artists and craftsmen who work with this ensemble are masterful."  –Chicago Sun-Times
"Spectacle and story so ambitious and colorful, poetic and vulgar, heroic and homely, it's like eavesdropping on your favorite author's waking dream."  –Centerstage Chicago

When Richard Mayhew stops to care for an injured girl on the street, he is drawn into a nightmare shadow world beneath the city of London. To return to his normal life, Richard must brave countless trials, uncover the truth behind a dark conspiracy, and face the indomitable Great Beast. Journey to London Below with a rogues’ gallery of liars, outcasts and assassins, on a treacherous voyage to awaken the hero within. By the award-winning adaptor and director of The Island of Dr. Moreau.
