Italy, 1976. Gilderoy is a long way from home. His work as a sound designer for Dorking-based nature documentaries has not gone unnoticed. He has swapped the foley table of his garden shed for the glamour of the Berberian Sound Studio. Here, at the height of giallo horror, cabbages become corpses, your own voice can be over-dubbed and silence speaks louder than screams.
Peter Strickland’s acclaimed horror film is adapted for the stage by Joel Horwood and Director Tom Scutt in this darkly comedic, sonic experience.
Previews start from Friday 8 February 2019.
