In rooms like this room people lie. Not little lies, the kinds of lies that kill people, or worse...

In this room, or in rooms like this room, they use phrases like collateral damage, like extraordinary rendition, like perception management.

They cover up their dirty words with clean ones, in rooms like this room. In rooms like this room, they redact the names.

In rooms like this room, language is laundered. The name of the game is spin.

Dead Cats blends new writing, performance, film-making, and an obvious plant, to show – not tell – the truths behind the fictions.


'This is coolly reasoned theatre, produced by Proto-type Theater with stylish aplomb.'
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
