Bedlam Theatre




Taliah Horner


Based on a childhood experience of the gradual buyout, by a celebrity chef, of a small town once beloved, Stained is an absurdist comedy about capitalism, isolation, and internalised transphobia.

An original writing by Taliah Horner, Stained contains themes and metaphors derived from political society but it is primarily an absurdist comedy. The population of this post-capitalist purgatory are nameless, genderless characters (alongside Mr Stains) who are derived from archetypal reactions to capitalism.

Graphic design by Mhari Sibeth and James Cranf.

Show Advisories: Transphobia / Asphyxiation / Strong language​.
