Pleasance Beyond August 2014

Role: Set Designer, Scenic Artist

From the novel by Hunter S. Thompson
adapted and directed by Lou Stein

"Hunter S. Thompson’s story of excess and tacky opulence in the city of sin warrants the lurid, garish production Lou Stein has created. Enticing and offensively comical, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a sturdy piece of frenetic, hyperbolic theatre, and I mean that as an absolute compliment."
Douglas Greenwood, The Edinburgh Reporter

"This is a boisterous, brash romp through sliver of bohemian America’"
The Edinburgh Evening News, five stars

"Evoking the essence of gonzo journalism, a genre pioneered by Thompson, this stage adaptation of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is erratic, frenetic and fun. Slickly produced it’s a rollercoaster of maniacal highs and lows, it’s inexorably energetic, and unmistakably gonzo."
Adam Squirrell, A Younger Theatre

"The search for the American Dream may inevitably be futile, but this show proves it can still be one hell of a trip."
