THE DODO EXPERIMENT

Martin Travers and Chloe Wyper

Citizens Theatre WAC Ensemble

20 Apr 2022 - 23 Apr 2022

A Site Specific production performed in Civic House Office Block, Glasgow

A dystopian thriller about a group of aspiring actors trapped in a dark social experiment.

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.
