Venues across the UK
September-November 2018

Pop brain-washing experiment MK ULTRA is back and this time we’re pushing it a step higher into some of the UK’s biggest theatres and performing arts venues. The conspiracy-fuelled show, produced in collaboration with documentary film maker Adam Curtis, asks some of the most important questions around the proliferation of fake news, the manipulation of reality and fragility of truth.

The first tickets for the tour have just gone on sale at London’s Southbank Centre. Early booking advised, book now. See the tour website for the other venues it will be visiting.
