Delirium
On from 05 Nov 2008 till 22 Nov 2008
Barbican
by Theatre O


About: Delirium

A radical re-interpretation of The Brothers Karamazov – Dostoevsky’s classic and compelling tale of family rivalries.

Hilarious, brutal and tragic, Delirium pulsates with energy, bursting at the seams with barely controlled passions in a battle of emotion versus intellect. In a world that’s losing its sense of morality, questions of faith and fundamentalism play out against unrequited love and lust for life, demanding you sit up and take notice.

Performance time: 19:30
Running time: 155 mins/inc interval

Age guidance 16+

Created by Theatre O

Playwright Enda Walsh is famed for previous acclaimed works Disco Pigs, Chatroom and The Walworth Farce.
