RUN THE BEAST DOWN
"An extraordinary piece of writing"
Live Theatre UK
“Burnt orange, bright against the summer woods. He stood grandly on all fours, the King.”
An exhilarating, darkly comic, hallucinatory play about insomnia, a talking fox, and a dismembered pet cat. Titas' debut play saw him nominated for Best Writer at the Stage Debut Awards and saw its star Ben Aldridge win (joint) Best Male Performance at the OffWestEnd Awards.
Run The Beast Down played at the Finborough Theatre and Marlowe Theatre in January - February 2017 starring Ben Aldridge (Our Girl, Fleabag).
