About: The Pitchfork Disney

21 years after it came kicking and screaming into the world, The Pitchfork Disney has come of age...

'You know why the ghost train is so popular? Because there are no ghosts. Once you know that you can make a fortune.'

Ten years ago something terrible happened to Presley and Haley. Since then they have lived alone in their dead parents' house. But one night their safe isolation is shattered by the arrival of Cosmo Disney, who confronts them with the scariest question of all... what exactly happened to their parents?

When it premiered at London's Bush Theatre in 1991, The Pitchfork Disney caused a sensation. With its barrage of barbaric and magical imagery, its gleaming dark comedy and catastrophic air of violence and sexual tension, audiences were left breathless, intoxicated and, in some cases, fleeing in terror.

Now director Edward Dick – following his critically acclaimed revival of Ridley's The Fastest Clock in the Universe at Hampstead Theatre in 2009 – takes on this contemporary classic and reveals that Ridley's dark and glittering vision looks today more like breathtaking prophecy.

Cast:
NATHAN STEWART- JARRETT (Misfits – TV, Wig Out – Royal Court Theatre)
CHRIS NEW (Prick Up Your Ears – West End, Bent – West End, The Reporter – NT, Weekend – Film)
MARIAH GALE (Rupert Goold's Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet with David Tennant)
and STEVE GAUDINO

Reviews

'A sort of tuning fork, vibrating with the apprehensions of a civilization.'
New York Times

'Ridley is delving into a sulphurous imagination for some of the most potent and indelible images you're likely to find this side of sleep.'
Scotland on Sunday
