KILL THE CAT IS AN AWARD-WINNING COLLABORATION BETWEEN THEATRE MAKERS DYLAN FRANKLAND AND MADELEINE ALLARDICE.

Based in both the South West and London, they make bold interactive theatre, keenly interested in the performer-audience dynamic, creating a shared sense of community and play, exploring difficult social issues (mental health/ loneliness/climate crisis) in fun and inventive ways, putting the audience at the heart of the action. Be it through interactive gameplay or striking up a genuine conversation.

Their current show THE HOUSE NEVER WINS is an interactive game theatre experience exploring  climate change, self-isolating and gambling for the planet. Receiving information through both zoom and their phones, audiences play what seems to be a simple game of blackjack. However, there’s a catch. Whilst trying to pit your luck against the dealer, you also must keep The House alive, messages appear on your phone: sea levels rising, mass extinctions, the burning Amazon, The House goes bust, the casino collapses. But surely you are only here to win a real cash prize?

“a stroke of genius, riveting and not to be missed”  LONDON THEATRE REVIEWS

“one of a few companies who make strong cases for theater in its digital form”  NEW YORK TIMES
