Background


Creation Theatre Company return to Omnibus Theatre following their riotous, smash-hit production of A Midsummer Night's Dream last summer (a finalist for the Off-West End Award for Best Theatre for Young People 2017).


Creation have been producing site-specific productions across Oxfordshire for 22 years, bringing anarchic adaptations of classic stories to unusual venues.


The Pit and the Pendulum has been adapted by Christopher York, a recipient of the High Tide First Commissions Award and a member of Old Vic 12 Shortlist 2016.


Synopsis


A political prisoner wakes in a pitch-black cell, unable to see what terror hides in the darkness.


As tension and fear escalate, the chances of survival grow slim.


Performed by just one actor with innovative binaural sound design, comes this new adaptation of Edgar Allan Poe's classic tale from award-winning Creation Theatre Company.


An exploration of sensory deprivation and isolation in a near pitch black room this promises to be a fully immersive experience like no other, using AV projection and wireless headphones.
