Following a critically acclaimed run at the Young Vic, multi award-winning theatre company 1927 bring Golem, their visually arresting and satirical take on our misuse of technology, to Trafalgar Studios 14 April – 22 May.
Mixing live performance and music with film and animation, Golem follows the life of extraordinarily ordinary Robert Robertson, whose life is irrevocably disrupted when he buys a golem – a creature who will improve the efficiency of his daily affairs. But when Robert upgrades to superior model Golem 2, the show questions what happens when man is no longer in control of machine.
Funny, mischievous and eerily relevant to today’s technology-reliant society, Golem is directed and written by Suzanne Andrade, with film, animation and design by Paul Barritt – who jointly won Best Designer at the 2014 Critics’ Circle Theatre Awards for the production. Music is by Lillian Henley and associate direction and design is by Esme Appleton.
1927’s first new theatre show in four years played in the Main House at the Young Vic 9 December 2014 – 31 January 2015 in a run which was extended due to popular demand.
The full cast for Golem at Trafalgar Studios will feature: Will Close, Charlotte Dubery, Lillian Henley, Rose Robinson and Shamira Turner. Golem is produced by Jo Crowley. The original production was co-produced by 1927, Salzburg Festival, Théâtre de la Ville Paris and the Young Vic and supported in development by The Tolman Centre Cornwall, Harrogate Theatre, Stratford Circus and The Old Market.

Review: Golem At The Trafalgar Studios
No sooner had I said that Es Devlin and Luke Halls’ design and video work on The Nether had raised the bar to a new level for this type of thing, along comes the visually stunning production of Golem from theatre group 1927 that serves up an eye-popping blend of performance, animation and music.
