The Enchanted transfers to London at The Bunker after a successful run at Edinburgh Fringe 2016 .
Death row in America. Men sit in isolated dungeons awaiting execution. An investigator works tirelessly to save them. She will not let men go to their deaths without a fight.
Rene Denfeld’s disturbing and poetic novel The Enchanted comes to life through performance, puppetry, choreography and sound in this striking adaptation examining themes of evil, punishment, clemency and redemption. This journey through the eyes of the condemned seeps deep into our consciousness – are monsters really born or do we create them?
Following a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016, Pharmacy Theatre present the London transfer of their debut show. The Enchanted highlights issues around capital punishment, child abuse, and the self-perpetuating cycle of violence corrupting the US penitentiary. Pharmacy Theatre commented:
“Now more than ever, the exploration of these concepts needs to be discussed with wider audiences. By sharing Rene Denfeld’s story, we hope to illustrate, and provoke discussion about, the parallel failings of justice systems in America and the UK. This run will allow us to ask questions and inspire solutions for the way forward.”
The Enchanted plays The Bunker on 6 – 17 June. For more information or to book tickets, please visit the website.
