Description

Winner of Underbelly, New Diorama and Methuen Drama’s hit-making Untapped 2022. Tonight, a new Caligari comes to life – accompanied by a five-piece band. Off West End Award-winning ChewBoy Productions present their minty-fresh take on a German horror cult-classic. Five actor-musicians reimagine the seminal silent film, this time with the doctor’s victims taking centre stage. Embracing the long shadows and broad brushstrokes of German expressionism, ChewBoy’s Caligari exposes parallels between post-war Weimar and the UK today – an ever-widening class divide, a subconscious need for a tyrant, and an unwillingness to rebel against deranged authority.
