The Black Rider – The Casting of the Magic Bullets

Tickets for The Balck Rider will go on sale shortly after the close of Commencing and Subway.

A few years ago Theatre Inconnu mounted the Tom Waits’ musical Alice. Since then we have been eager to once again bring the oh-so-wonderfully-eclectic music of this master back to our stage; this time his tunes being supported by the deliciously poetic and sensual script of the great beat poet, William S. Burroughs. Theatre Network aptly describes the work as such:
“It is a wickedly sensuous world where nothing is what it seems: the devil sings, the animals laugh and the walls are painted with blood. A poetic and fantastical folk-tale comes to life in the form of a bizarre and macabre musical, created by rock icon Tom Waits, beat poet William S. Burroughs…  To win the hand of his true love, Wilhelm makes a dangerous pact: a pact with the devil himself. He eagerly accepts the devil’s enchanted bullets, taking aim for a shot that just can’t miss!” Theatre Network
