DEMONS is a timely theatrical response to the general confusion of our own times and marks the Centenary of the Russian Revolution October 1917 - 2017. In 1869 five young radicals murder their co-conspirator Ivanov on a university campus. The subsequent trial causes a sensation across Imperial Russia and inspires Dostoevsky to write his prophetic satire on the new generation of revolutionaries. Erotics and ideologies intertwine and finally become demonic. Performed in a site-responsive staging in the atmospheric setting of St Leonard's. Many of the Elizabethan theatrical fraternity are buried in the crypt, including the Burbage family - Richard Burbage the very first actor to play Macbeth, Hamlet, Richard III and Romeo. Shakespeare also prayed there.
