horne's Descent


“He who sins is of the Devil, for the Devil has sinned from the beginning...”

January 1920. Newly ordained Peter Horne is invited to meet a childhood friend at a house in London.
Having left the conflict of WWI, Horne’s Descent follows the journey of a young priest as he spirals into
the depths of his own moral conflict. After the fog and fumbling of war, can you ever go back to the way
things were? Touching on themes of classism, religion and free will, this is a psychological interrogation
into whether we have the power to change the course of our lives.

Written by Nina Atesh (The Drought, Tales From the Hellfire Club) and directed by Chloe Cattin (Twigs,
Deck the Stalls
) comes a dark new drama exploring the destruction of man, set against the backdrop of a
broken England, trying desperately to pull itself out of the shadow of war.
