Presented by Knaïve Theatre after Karel Čapek
War With The Newts is an updated theatrical reimagining of Karel Čapek’s satirical sci-fi classic of the same title, transported to a post-Brexit Britain of the possible future.
Deep in the bowels of an oyster-dredging vessel, an ocean of opportunity arises as a new species makes contact.
Global risk and technological revolution come together in this unique experience from award-winning Knaïve Theatre.
Presented by the creators of international smash-hit Bin Laden: The One Man Show.
Produced in association with Royal Exchange Theatre, Square Chapel and Waterside.
Warning: life jackets must be worn at all times
