A killer! That’s what I am. And if I’m not very much mistaken...You could be too!
A loner finds an albino ostrich that can perform miracles. A one-legged surfer grows a new limb. A lonely maid's chance at romance is ruined by a sledgehammer. Killer is a magical and, at times, menacing anthology of stories told in the recesses of the dark...
Employing binaural sound, director Jamie Lloyd takes you on an intimate journey within the bowels of Shoreditch Town Hall and the depths of your psyche. In this world première production, Philip Ridley's darkly comic collection of new monologues shiver with the anxiety of our age.
Starring John MacMillan (recently seen in Yerma at the Young Vic, Jamie Lloyd’s production of The Homecoming at Trafalgar Studios and the BBC’s Silk)
