Fourth Monkey Theatre Present
Triniry Buoy Wharf, 64 Orchard Place, London
2 – 27 April 7.30pm (matinees on Thurs & Sat 3pm)
Project Colony is a twist on Franz Kafka’s In the Penal Colony, and has a 52 strong ensemble cast who will deliver this site specific spectacle at Trinity Buoy Wharf on the banks of the river Thames.
Written and Directed by Hamish MacDougall and James Yeatman this striking, immersive project, based on the existentialist writer’s original short story, has been conceived by two young directors who last collaborated as assistant and associate directors respectively on Complicite’s Master and Margarita at the Barbican.
A much anticipated follow up to the company’s staging of Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2012, the audience meets at a designated pick up point to partake in this unusual twist on the story of an elaborate torture and execution device. They are then escorted to a 1950s era colonised holiday camp where a travelling salesman has been invited to witness the execution of a condemned prisoner on a tropical island by the machine. Kafka’s story is a complex hall of mirrors. Is this a brutal murder or a sacred tradition that’s being eroded by modernity? When is it right to step in? As two children mourn their father a society hangs in the balance; they wait on the word of a foreigner to decide their fate.
