The central character will be played by Peter Eyre and other parts will be played by students from RADA and Julliard. The production is also supported by RADA production and design students. Performances take place at The Royal Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh from 16 – 18 August.

In his shocking and controversial painting of 1819, Théodore Géricault captures the moment when the naked, starving and wretched survivors of shipwreck glimpse hope on the horizon.

After the frigate Medusa ran aground off the coast of North Africa, 147 people who were denied space on the life boats, were crowded onto a hastily constructed wooden raft and cut adrift. After 13 days at sea, without food or water and after enduring unimaginable suffering, 15 survivors were picked up by the ship Argus.

This is the starting point for a devised piece of text-based, physical theatre, which characterises the showcase productions of the MA Theatre Lab.
