Awake & Asleep

Project Categories: Events | Productions

A partnership between the Magic, Language and Society’s network at Surrey university, Treadwell’s Bookshop ad Filotico Arts, this site specific play is set in a Bloomsbury bookshop, London. 1929. In Jessica Burgess’s Awake & Asleep a group of writers and intellectuals come together for a party at an occult bookshop in leafy Bloomsbury, but all is not as it seems. Torn between the feverish pace of the modern metropolis and the mystical promises of a new magical order, they have to choose between two world views that are, it seems to them, profoundly contradictory.
