some people talk about violence

“Outside someone is screaming – Just going for it - She wonders what would happen if I just started screaming?”

​In a world of globalization and greed, of zero-hour contracts and The Big Bang Theory, violence worms its way into every aspect of our lives. Following their debut show Nothing, multi award-winning young company Barrel Organ present Some People Talk About Violence. Expect people, or just ideas, in mindless frustration, on the edge of some kind of revolt.


​Some People Talk About Violence debuted at Summerhall as part of the Edinburgh Fringe before a two week run at Camden People's Theatre in London. The show then toured in Autumn 2016.
