War with the Newts at Waterside Arts, Manchester, 22 July 2018, from £12.00 - Book now

Witness the rise and fall of a new(t) capitalism. Deep in the bowels of an oyster-dredging vessel, an ocean of opportunity arises as a new resource makes contact. Global risk and technological revolution come together in War with the Newts, an immersive experience from the award-winning Knaïve Theatre Company.

The creators of international smash-hit Bin Laden: The One Man Show bring you the first look at their brand new contemporary re-imagining of Karel Čapek’s apocalyptic science-fiction satire before taking it to the Edinburgh Fringe.

Featuring surround sound installation by sonic artist Robert Bentall and produced in association with Royal Exchange Theatre, Square Chapel and Waterside Arts.

Warning: life jackets must be worn at all times.


This event takes place in a secret location to be announced. Details will be e-mailed to ticket-holders ahead of the performance.
