The Insti2ute at Pleasance Theatre from 20 to 31 Oct


The Insti2ute, a black comedy Halloween show, by Brendan Dodds & David Puckridge, at the Pleasance Theatre, in north London, from 20 to 31 Oct 2010.

In October 2009 a pharmaceutical corporation’s Islington laboratory ('The Institute') fell victim to a major industrial accident. Full details of what happened and the fate of those involved was never disclosed. Rumour and innuendo abound: unethical experimentation, a new plague, the dead walking…One year on, a company of politicians and clean-up crew, audience members will be amongst the first to enter this terrifying ruin. But in the shadows, other forces seek to uncover The Institute’s secrets for their own ends. And something is stirring in the dark. Something has survived…

NOTE: a promenade experience staged in the labyrinthine complex beside the Pleasance Theatre. Recommended for 16+, and the audience are standing and walking throughout.

Looking for the best seats...
