Presented by She Spat, Playfully…
Surrounded by shadows, a man, imprisoned and alone, is haunted by thoughts of what’s to come. Slowly, he begins to see that his is a torture beyond what he can imagine. Unseen, his captors leave him to pull himself apart with fear. The Pit and the Pendulum is a production which looks to bring to life Poe’s vivid examination of the blurred line between physical and psychological suffering.
Written for a cast of five, this new adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s short story is the first from new theatre company She Spat, Playfully. Designed as an ensemble piece and heavily reliant on dance, circus arts and physical theatre, this production looks to re-tell a familiar story in a unique way.
