Run The Beast Down

Run The Beast Down

Our third Made By The Marlowe production combined powerful storytelling, dark comedy and a mesmerising live score.

Written by acclaimed writer Titas Halder, Run The Beast Down follows the story of Charlie (played by Ben Aldridge) a man on the edge who is losing everything. Unable to sleep and haunted by an urban fox, a haze of neon-soaked insomnia see lines blurring between reality and fantasy.

Directed by Hannah Price and produced by Libby Brodie Productions, Run The Beast Down, was developed through The Marlowe’s Roar programme. Following its premiere in The Marlowe Studio it transferred to London’s Finborough Theatre for a successful and critically-acclaimed run.

The production was supported by Arts Council England and by The Marlowe Theatre Development Trust.
