Strawdog Theatre Presents RUN THE BEAST DOWN

Charlie has lost his job, his girlfriend and countless hours of sleep. Worse still, he's being haunted by a fox. Fantasy and reality blur as Charlie embarks on a vigilante journey, fighting back against capitalism and "the Beast". Set in London, amidst a financial crash and civil unrest, "rising star playwright" (Time Out, UK) Titas Halder's dark fairytale takes the audience on the rollercoaster of one man's obsession.

Comments Director Elly Green, "2020 brought us the opportunity to bring an audience even closer to this powerful and relevant piece of storytelling, placing them behind the camera, rather than in a black box. Filmed as a series of single shots, it has been a thrilling experiment in recreating an intimate, theatrical experience on film."

Following the production, Strawdog be donating 50% of ticket sales to Lakeview Pantry, an organization that works to overcome hunger, improve mental wellness, and achieve life goals. For additional information, visit
