We all have dark thoughts, some are darker than others but some are deadly dark.


The Hive fuses verbatim interviews with a scorching operatic score to explore our fascination with serial killers – from grim tales to the real thing; from the first act of murder to the protracted effect of psychopathic darkness. A story as beguiling as it is shocking.


The Hive Part 2 – Work in Progress will be performed “script in hand”.
