The Island of Doctor Moreau

  • The Island of Doctor Moreau

Four 585Piper Theatre Productions is proud to announce our first international tour of HG Wells’ The Island of Doctor Moreau this summer, 2013.  The production has been accepted into the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. Piper is in residence from August 11th through 25th with C Venues.  We have also performed here in New York at 59E59 Theater’s  East to Edinburgh.

The Island of Doctor Moreau is a mystical and savage tale of science run amok. A young man lands on a strange island where a mad scientist tampers with nature to warp animals into humans.  Piper’s Butoh-inspired original physical adaptation — along with an original and haunting score — creates an otherworldly island of horror.

Originally conceived by Mollie Lief Abramson, Christopher Cariker, Vasile Flutur, Zoë Frazer, Nicholas Guastella, Matt Luceno, John P. McEneny, Lucas Syed and Chinaza Uche.
