Little Eden - Camden People's Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

NEON Peach Theatre are presenting Little Eden at Camden People’s Theatre on October 6 and October 7, 2017.

Inspired by 1950’s Sci-fi B-movies, Little Eden utilises the genre’s pseudoscientific optic to explore a world of underlying fear and paranoia.

Jim has a useful job: he works for the symbol identification unit, helping to calm people’s anxieties by reassuring them whenever some meaning becomes unclear. In a world where outer space truly holds the unimaginable horror of alien reptilian overlords, people have a desperate need for a sense of clarity.

Jim is also happy to give a little blood to keep the peace with the reptilians; its a small price to pay for keeping things the way they’ve always been.

However, things start to go wrong for Jim when he stumbles across a symbol he cannot define. He prided himself on having complete knowledge of all the possible meanings and this unknown symbol starts to have an adverse affect on him. It disturbs him, knocks him off kilter and he begins to ask questions which make him look at the world in a different way, and shows him a truth he could never have expected.

Little Eden is performed by Ross Fletcher, Sophia Miller de Vega, Liam Farmer and Molly Edwards.

Neon Peach is a South London-based theatre company who met while studying Drama and Performance at London Southbank University. Their aim is to create work that explores and challenges social and political structures through dark, comic narratives.

Time: 9pm.
