CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
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).
