Don’t Lose Sleep Over Insomnia Let The Door Lead The Way Into The Dark World Of Sleep Deprivation

What happens when sleep eludes you and not just for a night but for a week; for a month? What does a man do when he's no longer sure what's real and what's in his head?

Inspired by writer Cherise Cross"s own battles with insomnia, The Door is a dark, psychological drama that takes the audience on an unnerving journey into the surreal world of sleep deprivation.

As John stumbles ever further into a maze of questions and confusion, we are asked to consider why this is happening and how he will escape it. Could the answer be hidden within his own mind?

This is a new production from London's 8fold theatre, a company of National Theatre staff who are developing a reputation for thought-provoking work that delves into the machinations of the psyche


Previous plays have explored a dystopian future (Seventh Day), and the secrets that lie behind seemingly innocent online interactions (The Arrangement).

Shot through with a wicked black humour, The Door promises an unforgettable theatrical experience for those bold enough to step inside.

The Door runs from 7.15pm – 8.45pm on Thursday, May 30 and Friday, May 31 at The Warren, Russell Place, Brighton, as part of the 2013 Brighton Fringe.

Tickets cost £10/£8.50. Call the Otherplace Box Office on 07800 983290.
