GTF The Beast Will Rise
by Philip Ridley | Garden Theatre Fest
The Beast will Rise is a collection of monologues by award-winning playwright Philip Ridley. It is powerfully haunting 'celebration of the glittering dark' (Arts Desk), where Chihuahuas are held ransom in an apocalyptic landscape, and a starling haunts a lover's fever.
An evening of two monologues (Cactus and Star), written in lockdown, directed by Wiebke Green. Full casting to be announced soon.
