British Premiere at Vault Festival.
A story about real-life gay celebrity serial-killer Jeffrey Dahmer. And real love.
PUFFERFISH is based on the incredible true story of Jeffrey Dahmer, who violently murdered 17 young men in the 1980s.
Digging past the bias and homophobia colouring the initial reporting, it explores the edges of our own loves, fears and desires. A glimpse into the darkness and the light inside one of the worlds most infamous serial-killers. Clashing together true crime, gentle comedy, brutal horror and old-fashioned romance.
This UK Premiere of Pufferfish came to the VAULT Festival following a sell-out run at Internationaal Theater Amsterdam as one of the most lauded new plays of 2017/2018 and part of the National Dutch Theatre Festival.
