It’s been announced that the world premiere of Philip Ridley’s Karagula is to take place in a secret location from the 10th June to the 9th July.
On a beautiful spring evening – when both moons are full – two teenagers vow eternal love. It is a moment that will have cataclysmic consequences. Not just for them, but for the world on which they live. A world where Prom Night is a matter of life or death, where weapons are grown and trained like pets, and where a chosen few are hearing a voice. A voice that speaks of… Karagula.
This premiere of Philip Ridley’s latest work will push the boundaries of British theatre and will explore our constant need to find meaning.
The production will be directed by Max Barton, with designs by Shawn Soh, sound by Jethro Cooke and lighting designs by Ric Mountjoy.
Philip Ridley’s previous stage plays include: The Pitchfork Disney, The Fastest Clock in the Universe, Mercury Fur, Tender Napalm, Dark Vanilla Jungle and Radiant Vermin.
Talking about this world premiere production, Director Max Barton said: ” It’s a thrilling prospect to be on the brink of realising this epic play. It’s so exciting to be working with the ground-breaking Philip Ridley again. In order to bring the wildly imaginative world of Karagula to life, we have assembled a brilliantly diverse group of artists, who bring non-traditional skills and vision to the process. I can’t wait to see what this team will collectively achieve.”
When booking tickets for the production, audiences will be told the secret location where the production can be seen as well as where the tickets will be available to be collected from.
