The Dodo Experiment
Citizens Theatre WAC Ensemble
Imprisoned in an abandoned warehouse, a desperate group of failing actors are trapped in a dark experiment. After months of endlessly rehearsing George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion with no director to guide them; some of the ensemble have disappeared leaving the others paranoid and subservient. Sleep-deprived and half-starved their fragile social bonds shatter and implode as a stranger breaks in and incites them to rebel.
Written by playwright Martin Travers and WAC member Chloe Wyper.
