QueenDome, Pleasance 
Edinburgh Fringe 2022

"Our modern life was built on the backs of the oppressed - if they were to demand repayment, would you be afraid?”

In 1791, a voodoo ceremony begins the Haitian Revolution to end enslavement on the island. In the present, a man is haunted by ghosts in his city.

As Pleasance Edinburgh Associates, Lagahoo Productions is proud to present, BOGEYMAN, a ghost story that playfully combines music, movement and history in the ultimate underdog story of resistance against the oppressor.

Powerful, moving and ultimately uplifting, it is a thrilling, genre-defying tale of hope, rebellion and connection within a broken system.

★★★★ The Scotsman

"a suburb and vibrant piece of movement theatre for our time"

★★★★ Theatre Weekly
