An outstanding piece of theatre from start to finish. Raw and dark… this is a show that everyone should see.” The Buxton Review
What happens when the wildest parts of our imagination take control? After the death of her mother, Ellie escapes into her own fantasy world of comic book superheroes and bewitching strangers, recreating herself as the ultimate vigilante.
Running amidst dark alleyways and sinister villains, she soon meets the wild and mysterious Beast and together they seek revenge. But as the walls of her new world begin to crumble, Ellie must finally face the truth behind her fantasies.
A visually stunning exploration of the power of grief and childish imagination, IAM BEAST was developed with teenagers, therapists, psychiatrists and neurologists with support from an Arts Award from the Wellcome Trust and funding from Arts Council England.
