Found In The Ground
by Howard Barker
Riverside Studios September 30 - October 11

In Howard Barker's most innovative and inventive work for the stage, a cast of 15 including a chorus of sadistic nurses and 3 barking dogs creates a startling and provocative kaleidoscope of images, movement and powerfully poetic language.

A dying former Nuremberg judge consigns his priceless library to the bonfire. As he rejoices in this willful barbarism, his delinquent daughter discovers a bizarre obsession and his executed victims appear. His desire to meet the arch criminal who evaded his prosecution is at last satisfied when Hitler arrives… to discuss painting.
