Run the Beast Down

Titas Halder

PaperBack (24 Jan 2017)

Charlie has stopped sleeping. His neighbour’s cat has been dismembered. And worse, he’s being haunted by an urban fox. In a haze of neon-soaked insomnia, lines blur between reality and fantasy.

A wild hallucinogenic mystery, Run The Beast Down is an exhilarating monologue play, combining elements of storytelling, dark comedy and magical realism.
