Karagula, a new fantasy epic by Philip Ridley, will premiere at a secret location in London, beginning performances June 10 prior to an official opening June 15, for a run through July 9.
Presented in association with Soho Theatre, it is produced by D.E.M. Productions and PIGDOG. It is set entirely in an alternative universe that chimes chillingly with events in the world today. On a beautiful spring evening — when both moons are full — two teenagers vow eternal love. It is a moment that will have cataclysmic consequences. Not just for them, but for the world on which they live. A world where Prom Night is a matter of life or death, where weapons are grown and trained like pets, and where a chosen few are hearing a voice — one that speaks of Karagula.
In a press statement, director Max Barton, who previously directed Ridley's Piranha Heights, comments, "It's a thrilling prospect to be on the brink of realising this epic play. It's so exciting to be working with the ground-breaking Philip Ridley again. In order to bring the wildly imaginative world of Karagula to life, we have assembled a brilliantly diverse group of artists, who bring non-traditional skills and vision to the process."
The location will be revealed prior to the opening.
