Shadows, dreams, they're all around us, they're everywhere!
 
Franzis Gruber, a lowly bureaucrat, lives a neat and ordered life in a sleepy, provincial German town. When a travelling fair arrives, full of clowns, freaks, magicians and sleepwalkers, it drags Franzis into a series of nightmarish murders – spinning dreams into reality, the imagined into truth and order into chaos.
 
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari is one of the most influential films of all time: a box office smash in 1920, it came to define cinematic Expressionism and inspire Film Noir. Torn from the screen, simple8 transforms the film into a fast, frenzied fairground sideshow with a "pungently evocative and blackly amusing master-class in the art of poor theatre" - Time Out.
 
“simple8 specialise in creating theatrical riches on a shoestring” ★★★★ The Indepenent
 
"Three cheers to a brave young company" ★★★★ The Evening Standard
