Breaking The Castle

Breaking the castle

Struggling actor David can’t get enough, of anything. Alcohol, drugs, women, gambling – whatever it takes to escape the bark of the black dog. Days and nights are lived through a thick haze of drugs, alcohol and Shakespeare’s soliloquies.

A comedy-drama embracing human complexity Breaking The Castle traverses mental illness, addiction, recovery and making a place for ourselves in this world.

Inspired by true events in the life of the playwright, this visceral, fierce, funny and uplifting tale features a tour-de-force performance from creator Peter Cook as a man yearning for connection.
