A distortion of the film Stand By Me

As flashing neon lights descend upon the tracks, a boxing-gloved boy with a death wish comes head to head with a white suited locomotive and a deer in black patent stilettos…

Join us for the international premiere of Castle Rock, a new story inspired by three of the voiceless characters in Stephen King’s novella The Body and its 1986 cult film adaptation, Stand By Me.

Expect distorted sound, movement and text as Massive Owl contort the book’s characters and twist the film’s soundtrack into a reimagined story about loss and acceptance.

Welcome to Castle Rock!

Why should you see this show?
The Owls did some development work on the show here in Project last year and blew our heads off at the work-in-progress showing so we can’t wait to see the finished product!
