Prestigious production company ‘imitating the dog’ will stage an exploration of Conrad’s classic novel, Heart of Darkness, at Cast (Doncaster) from 5 March ahead of a national tour.

Negotiating race, gender and the themes of exploitation, violence and nationalism, Heart of Darkness is a searing parable for our times, created at a moment when versions of Britain’s colonial past are being held up as a golden era and when our relationship with Europe is being severely tested.

The production promises to be filled with visually rich, multi-layered work that fuses live performance and digital technology.

“For imitating the dog, it was important that we retold Conrad’s story for audiences today, and from a new perspective,” explains Co-Artistic Director Pete Brooks. “Our production is now the story of the journey of an African woman into the darkness of a war-torn Europe.”

Heart of Darkness is at Cast, Doncaster from 5 to 6 March 2019. Book online at or call the Box Office on 01302 303 959. For more details about the tour, visit
