About the Show/Event

Cosmic Trigger
Information for Cosmic Trigger at Cockpit Theatre, Inner London (Play). Conceived backstage during Ken Campbell's legendary Liverpool production of Illuminatus, Ken's daughter Daisy Campbell, and a team of dedicated Discordians re-invoke those mythic performances, this time based on Robert Anton Wilson's Cosmic Trigger; which recounts a period of Bob's life when he journeyed through "Chapel Perilous" befriending the likes of Timothy Leary, Alan Watts and William Burroughs. This epic-scale production uses music, projections, and a voice-over by Alan Moore to evoke the real?-life hallucinogenic trip through conspiracy, paranoia and enlightenment that transformed Bob from a simple Playboy editor into the influential counter-cultural figure he is today.
Performers Oliver Senton (Robert Anton Wilson/Joseph Malik/Barney Muldoon), Kate Alderton (Arlen Wilson/Miss Portinari), Josh Darcy (Ken Campbell/Gary Kirstein), Jethro Skinner (Timothy Leary/Hagbard Celine/Neil Cunningham/Alan Watts), Tom Baker (Robert Shea/Aleister Crowley/Saul Goodman), Lee Ravitz (Kerry Thornley/George Dorn/Simon Moon), Leigh Kelly (Graham Wilson/Goat Man/Greg Hill/Slim Brooks), Carrie Marx (Karuna Wilson/Jano Watts/Prunella Gee/Mavis), Alan Moore (FUCKUP/Satan/Narration of Ishtar), Claudia Boulton (The Goddess Eris/Jacques Vallee/Pederastia), Dixie McDevitt (Luna Wilson).
