Project Dictator: Or 'Why Democracy Is Overrated and I Don't Miss It at All' (Modern Plays)
It's time you realised that your show is a thing of the past. It's dead. A fragment of history. This is the future and I need you to come on board.
Their choice? To die onstage - or off it.
Beautiful and bonkers - it's the clown show about totalitarianism you never knew you needed. Rhum + Clay's Project Dictator was informed and inspired by conversations with international artists living under authoritarian regimes. It returned for a UK tour after critically-acclaimed runs at New Diorama Theatre in April 2022, and at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2022.
Originally commissioned by New Diorama Theatre for its 10th Anniversary Season, Project Dictator was also supported using public funding from Arts Council England. This edition was published to coincide with the UK tour starting in September 2023.
