ACID is an original full length play by American writer John Schoneboom, who now lives on Tyneside. By turns hilarious, surreal and shocking, it raises the curtain on the CIA’s use of LSD to develop torture techniques in the 1950s. Steeped in closely researched history, it follows scientist Frank as his patriotism is tested by redeployed Nazi doctors, off-the-wall agents, too much time spent hiding behind the walls of brothel and his son’s discovery of beat poetry.

​ACID will be presented as a short documentary film, opening a window on the development of plays in the new world of socially-distanced theatre-making. Join writer, actors, director, designer and dramaturg in the workshop room, as they read extracts of ACID, discuss creative ideas and start the process of realising a future production.
