Created as epic spectacles for the stage, these immensely readable dramas burst with extraordinary characters, apocalyptic images and violent, often erotic, encounters. In Colossus, the subject is the great Spanish painter Goya. Deluging us with an overpowering stream of stage pictures, Barker evokes a world where love, art, cannibalism, and sudden redemption are interwoven. In Frankenstein in Love, Barker's homage to Mary Shelley's masterpiece and the shockingly graphic tradition of Grand Guignol theatre, we are invited to a wedding the likes of which the world has never seen. In the History of The Devil, Lucifer himself is brought to trial and, clue by clue, we piece together the mystery of Evil Incarnate. Dim the lights. Raise the curtain. The stage is set for three journeys into the dark heart of the imagination.
