A séance of murder, music and spoken word performance

Resuscitated for one night only. I Was Dora Suarez is the uncompromisingly dark and eerie aural evocation of Derek Raymond’s most talk about novel; introduced by one of Britain’s foremost crime writers, Cathi Unsworth, and performed live with narration by Richard Strange and musical backing from musicians who have played with Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey and Siouxsie Sioux.

Merging the haunting language of Raymond’s book with the spooky industrial tones of James Johnston (PJ Harvey, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Gallon Drunk, Faust, Lydia Lunch) and Terry Edwards (Gallon Drunk, Nick Cave, the Jesus & Mary Chain, Tom Waits), this unique audio-visual performance thrusts the audience into the centre of a savage double murder committed by the hand of one of literature’s most deranged serial killers.

‘I thought I was going mad’ – Derek Raymond

‘Not for the faint hearted’ – Joyce Carol Oates

‘Raymond wants to take us beyond the banal tabloid headlines, to show us what evil truly looks like’ – Jonathan Woods, 3amm
