On Friday December 16 at 8.00 in the Gielgud Studio Theatre at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art , Mystery Theatre of the Aether presents Travesty Theatre's production of Babalon.
Paul Green's play, originally written for radio, explores the enigmatic life and mysterious death of Jack Parsons (1914-52), pioneering American rocket scientist, disciple of the magus Aleister Crowley, and passionate devotee of Lady Babalon, the Scarlet Woman of the New Aeon. Alison RockbrandÅ¡s highly stylised production reinforces the resonance of the text with soundscape and visual projections to create unique moments of ritual theatre. There are also elements of dark farce and tragedy as Parsons' apocalyptic vision is subverted by hostile forces.
Tickets for Babalon can now be reserved via the RADA Box Office on 020 7908 4800.
