Hunter S Thompson's classic is re-imagined by director-adaptor Lou Stein.
This production explores Thompson's newly pertinent warnings about the loss of national identity and resonates with the instability that threatens journalism today. The current relevance of this cult classic is brought out by a focus on the surreal wit, humour and polemical heart of the original text.
Ralph Steadman, legendary illustrator and Thompson's collaborator, provides the artwork for this production.
Steadman's work will form a crucial part of the show's visual narrative.
