All You Need is LSD, Belgrade Theatre, 15-17 Nov
Following its world premiere in Birmingham this October, this darkly humorous drama heads to the Belgrade Theatre next month, drawing on its writer’s own experience as a medical guinea pig in 2015.
Leo Butler accepted an invitation to take part in the world’s first LSD drug trials since the 1960s.
Audiences are invited to join him as he searches for enlightenment and along the way encounters a whole cast of historical characters from Aldous Huxley to The Beatles and from Steve Jobs to Ronald Reagan!
Part history, part wild fantasy, this production showcases the company’s bold, anarchic and experimental style to question freedom, fear, life and death, and whether the world still needs a psychedelic revolution.
The show is directed by Told by an Idiot co-founder and Artistic Director Paul Hunter, together with “Associate Idiot” Stephen Harper.
Leo Butler said: “This play takes inspiration from a lifetime of my experiences – from a misspent youth through to the responsibilities of fatherhood, and from being a guinea pig in medical trials to actually creating the play itself.”
