Barrel Organ's sold-out Edinburgh Fringe hit, Conspiracy, is set to get its London premiere from 10 September to 5 October at New Diorama Theatre (more listing details are given below).

Multi award-winning Barrel Organ have created a postmodern pastiche about conspiracy theories, fake news and an epidemic of mistrust.

Using their signature fast-paced dialogue and a hatful of theatrical surprises to recreate the chaos of a world where nothing is as you perceive it, Conspiracy tells the stories of people brought crashing together to find the truth, to exploit hysteria and to fight the rising tide.

Directed by Dan Hutton, Conspiracy will be performed by Rose Wardlaw who recently starred in Blithe Spirit at the Bath Theatre Royal, Azan Ahmed who is set to star in (This isn't) A True Story at the Almeida Theatre, and Shannon Hayes, who recently starred in the BBC's acclaimed drama Years & Years. 

Barrel Organ's previous work includes: Anyone's Guess How We Got Here, Some People Talk About Violence and Nothing, while for Conspiracy the company is a recipient of The New Diorama & Underbelly Untapped Award 2019 (supported by Arts Council England).

JFK DID 9/11.

Three people sit in a room.

The context of their meeting is unclear, but they are examining an infamous photograph and something's not right.

They are conspiracy theorists and they think they're onto something big; but each discovery leads to the next inconsistency, the next inconvenient untruth, until their whole perception of the world, or each other, of themselves, of the very concept of truth, becomes the object of their mistrust.
