Science Fiction And Greek Theatre

Talos II: Science Fiction Theatre Festival

Talos: the Science Fiction Theatre Festival of London is the UK’s first sci-fi theatre festival staging science fictional plays from all over the world. Talos takes its name from the artificial giant of Greek mythology. After the first festival in 2015, Talos returns to stage even more plays with science fiction and fantasy elements, providing a platform for mind-blowing new writing and testing the boundaries of contemporary theatre.

Talos 2018 presents 12 plays featuring clones, dystopias, single-gender worlds, robot actors, unicorn fights and a Frankenstein live radio drama, celebrating the 200 years since Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein!
