KILLING ROGER

 

Killing Roger premiered at The Little Angel Theatre in 2013 before touring to Edinburgh Festival Fringe followed by a 27 date UK tour funded by the Arts Council and the Wellcome Trust.

"In the summer, I was lucky enough to see Killing Roger... one of the most powerful and memorable pieces of theatre I’ve seen – puppetry at its best."

Lisa Jamieson, The Guardian

 

 

 

"Nothing short of extraordinaary... something both magnificent and terrible: an uncompromising, visceral representation of what assisted dying actually means.”

The beautiful script, phenomenal puppetry, and stunning live music make this an incredible piece of theatre. This performance is intensely thought-provoking, and impossible to forget.

Sparkle and Dark Theatre Company has a reputation for creating thought provoking tales that are expertly told to leave the audience thinking. Killing Roger is no exception. This play is fantastic and made me laugh as well as bringing me to tears. If you have a chance to see any of Sparkle and Dark theatre works go, it’ll be an intense but enjoyable experience to behold.

Killing Roger is an important piece of theatre. The conclusion of the performance is touching, shocking and visually stunning. Killing Roger is a powerful theatre piece which expresses raw emotion and presents puppetry in a new, challenging and refreshing light.

"Roger the puppet takes on a life of his own and brings a touching humanity to a controversial subject."

Emily Jupp, Evening Standard

 

This powerfully presented story is thought-provoking and unpredictable… two

outstanding, nuanced and sensitive performances from both our lead characters ensure this piece captivates the audience and tugs at the heart strings.... an intensely moving, provocative and inspiring hour of drama.

“The Girl with No Heart... not so much a puppet show as a puppet masterclass... Sparkle and Dark's storytelling has class and power. “
