Presented by Venice as a Dolphin

MARY: Can you tell what I’m thinking?

JOCK: Yes.

MARY: Bet you can’t. What am I thinking then?


JOCK: You’re thinking… this is what it feels like to be free.



Drawing on the Scandinavian folk narrative that inspired The Virigin Spring and The Last House on the Left,  Exploitation revisits this bogeyman nightmare for our times and asks what it means to go too far and not be able to find your way back.

To avoid fainting, keep repeating, it’s only theatre

…only theatre

…only theatre

…only theatre

…only theatre.

Venice as a Dolphin makes play inside theatre spaces, out in the real world and in the spaces in between. Most recently at Camden People’s Theatre with The First Time as Tragedy (Sprint 2019) in development with HighTide and Coney.

Written and created by William Drew

Directed by Rebecca Atkinson-Lord

This production contains references to sexual violence, murder and sadism. Age rating: 18+
