Back by popular demand after their 2014 Liverpool and London shows.

Cosmic Trigger is the story behind the notorious conspiracy satire, Illuminatus, the extraordinary life and times of the novel's co-author, Robert Anton Wilson, and the unstoppable force that was theatre legend, Ken Campbell.

“Robert Anton Wilson’s Illuminatus had a profound effect on me and Cosmic Trigger Play will no doubt do the same for a whole new generation.”
Alan Moore, writer/author V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Jerusalem
The script by Daisy Eris Campbell (Ken’s daughter) is based on Wilson’s autobiography.

Set in the late sixties and early seventies, the play recounts the period of Wilson's life around the conception and writing of Illuminatus. During this time, he befriended Timothy Leary, Alan Watts, and William Burroughs, took LSD and experimented with magical rituals of Aleister Crowley with predictably - and unpredictably - mind blowing results...

“A genuine voice; compassionate, witty, life affirming. Pure theatre.” 
Terry Johnson, Olivier Award winning writer/director
