Berberian Sound Studio adapted for stage

The play will be performed between 8 February and 30 March at central London theatre Donmar Warehouse

Peter Strickland’s surreal thriller, the 2012 film Berberian Sound Studio has been adapted for the stage by Joel Horwood and Director Tom Scutt. Based on the original motion picture screenplay, a sound engineer swaps the foley table in his garden shed for the Berberian Sound Studio in a plot that has him making sound effects for an Italian giallo film. But the lines between fiction and reality blur. Among the actors taking to the stage is Loré Lixenberg. It will run between 8 February and 30 March at Donmar Warehouse.
