The multi-award winning Kill The Beast have been Associate Artists at The Lowry since 2013, and since have gone on to win The Stage Edinburgh Award in August 2016 for ‘Don’t Wake The Damp’.
They won Best Studio Production at the Manchester Theatre Awards and the Peter Brook Festival Award in 2014, as well as being chosen as a BBC top pick at the Edinburgh Fringe for ‘He Had Hairy Hands’.
Inspired by classic cinema, Director’s Cut follows a hapless group of artists as they try to film a horror film live on stage.
Claire Symonds, Senior Producer: Artist Development at The Lowry says, “We have supported Kill the Beast from the offset through our Associate Artist programme.
“Over the last seven years they’ve grown from a bunch of macabre comic misfits into an award winning company at the peak of their powers.
“Director’s Cut was a total sellout when it first premiered with us and we can’t wait to have it back – and at the perfect time, Hallowe’en!”
Created in 2012, Kill the Beast are also the team behind new company SpitLip, who recently won the Stage Debut awards for Best New Musical ‘Operation Mincemeat’.
