Ex Nihilo Theatre Group in association with Park Theatre are proud to present the World Premiere of Dialektikon by Jacky Ivimy. DIALEKTIKON is a deliciously dark ‘down-the-rabbit-hole’ tale of a young woman on a journey to find herself, her courage and hope for a world in danger. The production runs from 6th – 29th December.
As a dragon roars, Miranda wakes in Moloch’s kingdom of greed, war and destruction. Led by a mysterious spirit guide, warned by great voices from the past, seduced by Moloch’s wily Servant, how will she find a way out?
