Run The Beast Down

When I looked up, I saw him. Burnt orange, bright against the summer woods. He stood grandly on all fours, the King.”

An exhilarating, darkly comic, hallucinatory one-man play about insomnia, a talking urban fox, and a mystery about a dismembered pet cat.

"Breathless, trippy, riveting"
