Stack up all the mad scientists who have ever conducted abominable experiments in a secret laboratory -- from Victor Frankenstein up through Dr. Evil -- and all of them together are not half as brilliant, deranged and flat-out horrifying as Dr. Moreau. More terrifying than any of H.G. Wells' other creations (and that's counting the aliens of The War of the Worlds and the Invisible Man), Dr. Moreau and his private zoo/nursery of half-man, half-animal "children" have thrilled and repulsed audiences since first appearing in print in 1896. Now Synetic artistic director Paata Tsikurishvili will direct and appear in a fresh adaptation of Wells' The Island of Dr. Moreau. Set to original music and charged with riveting dialogue, this highly physical tale creates a horrifying world you will long remember. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“This heart-breaking, gut-wrenching story is a phenomenon of live theatre that must be seen to be believed.”—DC Metro Theater Arts
“Chances are, most of us haven’t ever seen anything like this on a stage before.”—ShowBizRadio
This brand new, original play from Synetic’s aclaimed director Paata Tsikurishvili and writer Ben Cunis tells the story of a young man whose entrance into military life causes him to re-examine the meaning of home, family, love and honor. Rife with the stunning visuals and remarkably physical style Synetic Theater is known for, this is a wartime thriller, unexpectedly and expertly crafted for stage.
