Project Colony (for ages 16+) is a large-scale, site-specific show that is an interpretation of Franz Kafka’s In The Penal Colony.   This dark and immersive theatre piece is a story of an elaborate torture and execution, set within a 1950s-styled colonised holiday camp. This is a site specific production spread across two buildings, one of these being below ground level. As such this room can get cold, we therefore advise patrons to wrap up warm to ensure the climate does not impact their enjoyment of the production. Meeting at a designated pick up point, the audience are escorted to the colony and once on the island, become part of the action as the inaugural colony tourists; witnessing the battle between the old establishment and the new, assessing for themselves the harsh realities for the inhabitants of this isolated and conflicted land.

This production is a follow up to the company’s recent sell-out and award winning production of Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis (“It was perfect. It was Sarah Kane” The   Edinburgh Reporter *****), which was produced in both London and at the Edinburgh Fringe last year.
