"A doorway to a new future is ready to open. We are the hinge of that moment. We will let the door swing wide"

On a beautiful spring evening when both moons are full two teenagers vow eternal love

It is a moment that will have cataclysmic consequences

And not just for them

Also 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

A voice that speaks of ...


Philip Ridley's extraordinary, form-shattering Karagula is a play of epic proportions

Written in a fractured timescale, it explores our constant need to find meaning

To believe we're here for a reason

To have faith in something



"We need writers such as Ridley to take us to these dark crevasses of experience ... it all remains with you like a vivid hallucination" ~ Arts Desk

"No one captures pain, violence and the misery of love gone wrong quite like Philip Ridley" ~ Daily Telegraph

"... lacerating excruciating theatre, which leaves the audience exhausted and speechless" ~ Evening Standard
