Cosmic Trigger archiveConceived 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.
