Award winning director Hannah Price directs new playwright Titas Halder’s debut play, Run The Beast Down, premiering at Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre on 24 January ahead of opening at the Finborough Theatre for a four week limited season on Tuesday, 31 January 2017.
Charlie has stopped sleeping. His neighbour’s cat has been dismembered. And worse, he’s being haunted by an urban fox. In a haze of neon-soaked insomnia, lines blur between reality and fantasy. What are they up to? Whatever it is, it’s big. The mystery twists its way towards a dead rabbit, a city in flames and a Kendal mint cake fuelled murderous showdown.
An exhilarating theatrical journey performed with a live electronic score, Run The Beast Down is a exciting hybrid piece of theatre and music, combining elements of storytelling, dark comedy and magical realism with a pulsing soundtrack.
Run The Beast Down is Titas Halder’s first full length play. It will be directed by Hannah Price, founder of Theatre Uncut and director of the critically acclaimed Boa (Trafalgar Studios), starring Dame Harriet Walter and Guy Paul.
