Created on zoom during the 2020 lock-downs and shot over a weekend at The Substation in Newport, Western Edge’s flagship ensemble, Sub30 Collective presents the premiere screening of their feature film/theatre hybrid: The Retreat.

Desperate to break into the business of showbiz, five young and promising creatives enter the Great Denzel Stallone’s ‘Artist Retreat’ with hopes of becoming his champion and sky-rocketing their careers.

But it becomes clear that this tranquil mountainside getaway is not what it seems – could it be that something sinister is lurking underneath the fake pot plants, astroturf and upbeat wall murals? What is really needed to thrive as an artist? How do you know if you’ve got ‘it’? And who gets to decide? They being to question how far they’re willing to go for success and what they’re prepared to sacrifice before the day of judgement arrives.
