Director Ben Frost

The Wasp Factory recounts the disturbing acts of a troubled teenager on a remote Scottish island. The Sacrifice Poles, Boiling Pool, Ice Chamber and Volt Room are names Frank has given to places in his world – an isolated environment, where he is left to his own devices by his reclusive father. Frank invents his own warrior cult and, using a homemade device called the Wasp Factory, develops a brutal way of predicting the future.

Director and composer Frost creates three-dimensional sonic structures that envelop an audience in extremes of volume and texture. Mirella Weingarten’s set designs evoke a bleak, natural landscape. With lighting by Lucy Carter, The Wasp Factory promises to be as chilling as it is powerful.
