by Philip Ridley (Running Time: 1hour 5 mins)

The Beast will Rise is a collection of monologues by award-winning playwright Philip Ridley. It is powerfully haunting ‘celebration of the glittering dark’ (Arts Desk), where Chihuahuas are held ransom in an apocalyptic landscape,  and a starling haunts a lover’s fever.

An evening of two monologues (Cactus and Star), written in lockdown, directed by Wiebke Green. Full casting to be announced soon.
