POWER, THEATRE AND HUMANITY.

Since 2012, the Unicorn has programmed a strand of work for adults that invites us to think about how children experience our society. This year’s show by highly regarded and controversial Swiss director, Milo Rau, deals with some of our greatest fears and taboos. In Five Easy Pieces, seven children aged 9 – 14 recreate the interviews and statements of those affected by Marc Dutroux, Belgium’s notorious serial killer.

Moving and at times funny, this remarkable, sensitive and politically-charged show interrogates the darkest corners of society and questions our assumptions.

‘Rau’s piece explores how we construct personal identity at times of national trauma.’ The Guardian (full article available to read)

Please note: this play refers to real life accounts from the Dutroux case which some audiences may find upsetting. Contact the Box Office for more information.
