A 1927, Salzburg Festival, Théâtre de la Ville Paris & Young Vic co-production
GOLEM
Created by 1927

Man and machine in imperfect harmony

Hailed as “groundbreaking with strokes of genius” (The Daily Telegraph, UK), British theatre company 1927 has developed a cult following with its unique brand of theatre-making – marrying cutting-edge technical wizardry with a distinctly vintage aesthetic.

Like a giant graphic novel come to life, Golem is a visual feast that integrates live actors, original music and mesmerisingly detailed handmade animations.

Office worker Robert and his musician sister Annie were raised by their grandmother on a steady diet of knitting, whittling, Beethoven and anarchy. When Robert buys a Golem – an obedient, efficient man-machine – life becomes a little more convenient, but also a lot more complicated.

Taking inspiration from the folkloric figure of the same name, Golem rethinks the myth to ask one of the great questions of the modern age – do we control technology, or does it control us?

After celebrated seasons across Europe, Golem comes to STC for a short but enchanting run. Take a step through the looking glass with this dark and fantastical tale.

“This funny, unsettling and unforgettable satire is a Frankenstein for the 21st century. Alive with irony, imagination and humanity.”
