A Graphic Novel For The Stage As 1927’s Golem Visits The Playhouse This October.


A visually-stunning production is set to visit the Playhouse from 18th-21st October, as theatre company 1927 present Golem, a graphic novel bursting into life on stage.

Described as, “ground-breaking with strokes of genius” by the Daily Telegraph, Golem has toured as far as New York, Sydney and Beijing in previous years winning awards for its conceptual design.

The production is the creation of pioneering theatre company 1927, seamlessly synchronizing live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation, posing questions about the about the digital age and our over-reliance on technology.

The story follows 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 Golem 2.0, it begins to emerge just what happens when man is no longer in control of machine.

Golem is a dystopian fable for the 21st century written and directed by Suzanne Andrade; with award-winning film, animation and design by Paul Barritt.

Suzanne Andrade, co-artistic director of 1927 said: “1927 are a pretty original, weird and wonderful theatre company, with a very dry sense of humour that we think will be appreciated by the Liverpool audience.

We can’t wait to show you Golem and we look forward to meeting a great audience who are ready to see something completely new and different.”

1927’s Golem will visit the Playhouse for four performances from 18th-21st October. Tickets are available at: www.everymanplayhouse.com/whats-on/Golem or by calling the Box Office on 0151 709 4776.
