Bad Reputation – Premiere Theatrical Season – Online, 23-27 October 2020

An urgent theatrical response to life under lockdown,​ ​from internationally acclaimed political-activist theatre company Doppelgangster.

From visionary theatre-makers Doppelgangster comes a mesmerising and psychedelic tale of three lighthouse keepers imperilled by oppressive fog on an isolated island. When a ship ignores their light and smashes into the rock nothing prepares them for what’s on board.

Featuring blistering performances by BA Acting & Performancestudents (Sheffield Hallam University) and BA Creative Arts students (La Trobe University, Melbourne), Doppelgangster cranks up the horror and tension in this audio work inspired by ​Three Skeleton Key by ​George Toudouze.

Bad Reputation​ ​is a dazzling, mesmerising and thrilling audio artwork inspired by life under lockdown. Text-based,post-dramatic, political satire, featuring a talented company of emerging artists, and a violent and anarchic experimental jazz score.

Doppelgangster ​is one of the world’s leading environmental and political activist theatre companies and has staged controversial performances at UNClimate Talks, horrible corporate expos, and public demonstrations.
