Goat and Monkey – The Devil Speaks True (7.30pm)

Saturday 22 October 2016

Book online

Suitable for: Age 14+

For this event we have partnered Eventbrite for our ticket bookings


The Devil Speaks True is an intimate, immersive dramatic performance about the journey home of people from conflict zones, with the audience placed in the centre of a rapidly unravelling existence. This innovative production cuts the words of real ex-servicemen into Shakespeare’s Macbeth to explore the post-traumatic stress disorder of Macbeth’s brother-in-arms Banquo and of soldiers in the modern world.

Often taking place in complete darkness, The Devil Speaks True uses wireless headphones and binaural sound design to plunge audiences into a 360 degree auditory experience, while using the story to explore the psychological effects of war on returning soldiers. Scent, special effects, projection and dance are all used to create an intense and compelling emotional world for the audience.
