Platform 4 presents: Triffids! a gig theatre adventure in music sound and pictures… 

Meteors! killer plants! b movies! this remarkable collision of music, text and rich visual imagery takes the audience deep into John Wyndham’s classic cold war novel: the day of the triffids.

The live soundtrack is created with instruments including moog, double bass, theremin, hammered dulcimer and… a cactus! the incredible team behind Triffids have worked with the National Theatre, Bellowhead, Southbank Centre, Kneehigh, BBC and the Bone Ensemble; together they create a very special magic, as seen in their previous collaboration, the acclaimed invisible music. 

“Platform 4 are a remarkable company”
