Award winning director Hannah Price directs the world premiere of new playwright Titas Halder’s debut play, Run The Beast Down, opening at the Finborough Theatre for a four week limited season on Tuesday, 31 January 2017, starring Ben Aldridge (Fleabag, Our Girl, Lark Rise To Candleford, The Railway Man) alongside live on-stage Sound Designer and DJ Chris Bartholomew.
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.
Run The Beast Down has been developed under the Marlowe Theatre’s ROAR! Project for New Writing and will premiere at the Marlowe Theatre Studio Space from 24-28 January 2017. It will feature the music of DJ ANoR and other artists.
