Huxley's Lab

, Edinburgh

A co-production between Grid Iron and Lung Ha's Theatre Company, in association with The Festival Theatre. Part of Edinburgh International Sceince Festival.

"Do you hear the tinkle of the bells? The distant tinkle of the bells? We are at the gates. And we know the four digit code."  

In an age where genetic perfection is held up as the quintessential path to a happy, fulfilled life, is there increasingly little space for difference in our society? Are we sleep-walking into a new age of eugenics, or is Huxley's Brave New World still hundreds of years away?

We, enter, behind doors that should be closed, a lab which might determine the future of our race... But someone is trying to break into this perfectly controlled world, to pose their difference as a joyous alternative, to make their voices heard.
