Platform 4



Platform 4 presents: Triffids! A gig theatre adventure in music sound and pictures...


This remarkable collision of music, text and digital projection takes the audience deep into John Wyndham's classic cold war novel: The Day of the Triffids, with a live soundtrack created with instruments including Moog, Double Bass, Theremin, Hammered Dulcimer and... a Cactus!

The incredible team behind Triffids! have worked with The National Theatre, Bellowhead, Southbank Centre, Kneehigh, BBC and The Bone Ensemble;together they work a very special magic, as seen in their previous collaboration, the acclaimed Invisible Music.

"A Compelling Wonderful Piece"
