Event Details

Hobart based Loud Mouth Theatre presents a new version of the  HG Wells’ classic novella

His is the hand that makes

His is the hand that wounds

His is the hand that heals

His is the House of Pain…

Renowned naturalist Edward Prendick is stranded on a remote island with the mysterious Doctor Moreau and his assistant Montgomery. The island is also home to a bizarre community of misfits whose rituals seem to deify Moreau at the centre of a twisted religion.

Who are these creatures? Where have they come from? And why are there such piercing screams coming from Moreau’s chambers?

This new adaptation of HG Wells’ classic novella evokes a singularly unsettling vision of scientific progress gone awry. Drawing together physical theatre, puppetry and choreographic movement, The Island of Doctor Moreau is a brand new creation stitched together of disparate parts. Dark, atmospheric and absurd, this production will offer a tantalising glimpse into the mind of a scientist not bound by traditional notions of ethics and morality.
