Cancelled due to reasons beyond our control


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.

Castle Rock is 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 projection 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…

Performed and devised by Jenny Duffy, Sam Powell and Danny Prosser. Additional music by Sammy Metcalfe/Sleepwalk Collective. Supported by Arts Council England, Barbican Centre, Bristol Ferment, ICIA Bath, The Island, Arnolfini, Project Arts Centre, Live Collision, Fringe Lab and the British Council (Ireland).

Warning: this performance contains loud noise and flashing imagery.

Massive Owl are based in Bristol and make cinematic work that sits between theatre and live art. They are associate artists of Live Collision and members of artist collective, Interval.
