DARK VANILLA JUNGLE by Philip Ridley

Burning Coal Theatre at the Camden Fringe Festival – August 10 – 14, 2016
Cockpit Theatre, London, England

Burning Coal Theatre Company of Raleigh, North Carolina returns to the Cockpit with Philip Ridley’s brutal 70 minute “Dark Vanilla Jungle”.

In November, 2014, Burning Coal brought over David Edgar’s roaring Iron Curtain Trilogy (4-stars, Michael Billington, Guardian).

The company returns with Philip Ridley’s quietly devastating masterpiece.

Sunday 14th August – 8:30pm
