"Hugely ambitious, wildly physical, stunningly effective" --Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
"Remarkably spectacular... gutsy... [a] serious assault on the senses" --Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
"Taut, exciting and unforgettable" --Catey Sullivan, Windy City Times
A shipwreck, a rescue and the shock of being marooned on a terrifying island - that's just the beginning for Edward Prendick. Now, he is trapped in an impossibly brutal world by a twisted man of science, out to transform nature into a warped mirror of himself. And in the face of the ultimate horror, can Edward (or any of us) escape with humanity and reason intact? A thrilling and immersive tale that will unsettle the steeliest of nerves in a fluid and dynamic production.
Violent content, not appropriate for children under 14.
