Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Told by an Idiot present:
All You Need Is LSD
The drug laws in this country – the drug laws in the world – all stem from this attitude that pleasure is a bad thing.
In 2015, acclaimed British playwright Leo Butler accepted an invitation from former Government drugs tsar, Professor David Nutt, to be a guinea pig in the world's first LSD medical trials since the 1960's. This is the result.
A world premiere from playwright Leo Butler, this darkly humorous new play illuminates the drugs debate that won't go away and examines the freedom we have to make our own choices in life, and death.
Monty Python, Being John Malkovich, and Alice in Wonderland all resonate in this exhilarating and original comedy as we watch Leo jump down the rabbit-hole of a medical trial in search of enlightenment - and a good story.
Along the way he meets an array of characters whose own stories in the history of LSD are hilariously and poignantly uncovered.
