Monsters archiveBased on the killing of James Bulger in February 1993. 'Do you think it is useful to watch / the enactment of two children killing a third? / Do you think it might teach you something? / Do you think you can tell your friends: / Last week I went to the theatre and saw / two children killing a third?' In a forest of monitors, speakers and microphones, this stark, poetic play will not only explore the immediate events surrounding James' killing, but will also interrogate how and why we re-tell stories, and why you have come to watch and listen. Four actors will deconstruct what happened that February in a poignant theatrical experience, swapping and sharing roles to create a different performance every night. Based on the facts, the voices of Robert, Jon, Robert's mum, Jon's mum and the police investigators will confront our personal and collective memories and invite us to imagine the truth anew. Running time 1hr 20mins
