‘There is an instinctive revulsion against taking a human life
And that revulsion lives in our hearts
And that revulsion is the best part of us
And that revulsion can be conquered’
Video game designer Paul has created Killology – a game where players are rewarded if they kill their opponents in the most tortuous and creative way possible. The more protracted the murder, the higher you level up. But when teenager Davey gets brutally murdered in ways not dissimilar to those in the game, who's to blame?
Flittering between three monologues, Gary Owen’s Olivier award winning play ‘killology’ examines the relationship between violence, masculinity, fatherhood, representation, and blame in the 21st century, and poses deeply challenging questions about desensitisation and technology.
