Sedated By A Brick Present Serrated By A Knife Present Sedated By A Brick. Sedated By A Brick are accidentally possessed by their imaginary alter-ego theatre company, Serrated By A Knife.

With: Sedated By A Brick

An over-production of words most lovely in its malignancy.

Bernard Manning is dead. Kate Bush is a recluse. Elton John is threatening to don his divine lawsuit.

Will this collision of identities result in the ultimate meta-fiction or everyone dying in the cold of cabin fever?

[SBABSKAB]11th-15th March, Wardrobe Theatre, St Michael’s Hill, Bristol  8PM

Sedated By A Brick have been creating the final parts to their adaptation of inspirational and seminal book,  the Shining.

Audience feedback from last showing: “that was fucking astounding”

We think that we may have written a new classic for the English-speaking world. An over-production of words most lovely in its malignancy.  Bernard Manning is dead. Kate Bush is a recluse and Elton John is wearing his glasses. Surely nothing could go wrong!  Round the church backwards three times I divorce thee, I divorce thee, I divorce thee. It’s the ever popular @serratedbyanaif…..come to spoil our self-congratulatory party.… Read on...

Z-arts, 6 til 10pm

Manchester (M15 5ZA)


Tonight, Sedated By A Brick will summon up the spirits of their alter-ego theatre company, Serrated By A Knife.

Is there anybody out there?

Unexpectedly, three icons of the seventies will answer their call and assume the mantle of Serrated By A Knife, presenting their dramatic rendition of seminal book/film classic, The Shining.

A fevered dream, a paranoid trip or an inter-generational seance? Whatever way you see it, they are a company possessed.

Sedated By A Brick are a Bristol-based performance company, producing high quality ‘quirk’ since 2009. They want to see what kind of experiences they can create when they put their minds and bodies together.… Read on...

Showing Them Our Bits / Upcoming Dates

Hello world.

Well, we went to the Roundhouse, we showed some bits and we got some feedback. A sea of seemingly angry faces stared at us as we hit them with a flurry of text about possessions, The Shining and alter-ego theatre companies. Fortunately, the anger was only a misperception from inside the trappings of our performance and the feedback session afterwards was useful and constructive, with some engaging and deeply responsive feedback. It has definitely made us think further about the text in relation to the performance style we have chosen to adopt so far, and the general consensus was that even if it is confusing it is never unengaging because of that. In fact some people could have handled further confusion; you don’t have to tell us twice!… Read on...
