“THERE IS AN INSTINCTIVE REVULSION AGAINST TAKING A HUMAN LIFE. AND THAT REVULSION CAN BE CONQUERED.”

 

 

The multi-award winning combination that created Iphigenia in Splott; Artistic Director Rachel O’Riordan and Associate Artist, Gary Owen, return in Killology; a new play and co-production with the Royal Court Theatre, London.

A controversial new gaming experience is inspiring a generation.

In Killology, players are rewarded for torturing victims, scoring points for "creativity".

But Killology isn't sick. In fact it’s marketed by its millionaire creator as a deeply moral experience. Because yes, you can live out your darkest fantasies, but you don’t escape their consequences.

Out on the streets, not everybody agrees with him.

“YOU CAN'T TELL YOUR MUM THE STREETS ARE FULL OF PSYCHOS AND IT'S PURE FLUKE YOU GET HOME ALIVE EVERY NIGHT.”
