Venue: Network Theatre
Age Guidance: 15+
Age rating: 15+ - 'The Messiah Complex' contains strong language, depiction of religious fundamentalism, murder, child abuse, psychological abuse and gas-lighting.

“The unproven is blind, untrue and punishable”.

A possible future, where faith is forbidden. You cannot believe in anything which cannot be proven. And the Complex are watching. Making sure that you don’t.

But one man still believes. Even though they stole his memories and edited his dreams – he remembers what they did. And they remember what he did, too.

A post truth fable. A morality tale about taking belief to extremes.

A mindbending psychological philosophical thriller from multi Off West End Award nominated company Bag of Beard.

Bag of Beard Theatre

Bag of Beard are a multiple award nominated theatre collective, with original words and original music.

“Stunning and explosive ... almost Beckett-like in its surreal style” - A Younger Theatre on ‘Bath’

We work collaboratively, often with the process of devising and scripting what has come out of that devising process. Grassroots, elements of physical theatre, poetry and dark humour. Our work has a comment to make on how our generation lives now, and how we engage with the world.
