THE MONSTER TRILOGY
The world is a scary place. There are more and more things for us to be afraid of: Politics; other people; ourselves and what we are capable of.
We have been exploring this fear through a trilogy of plays.
NOSFERATU - Fear of the unknown
MEDUSA - Fear of others and what they turn us into
CHANGELINGS - Fear of ourselves
Using the combination of music, digital and the craft of Meyerhold’s Biomechanics, we create an innovative and engaging approach to re-telling stories and drawing out their relevance to contemporary society.

We tell you the story… one that is not often told;
the story of a woman who exacts her revenge on the men that destroyed her
and the gods that cursed her.
We tell you the story of Medusa… the truth.
A crew of sailors journey from Varna to Whitby with a mysterious unknown cargo – a cargo that holds the key to unlocking the terror that lurks within our unconscious minds.
