In Killology, players are rewarded for torturing victims, scoring points for “creativity”.

But Killology isn’t sick. In fact it’s marketed by its millionaire creator as a deeply moral experience. Because yes, you can live out your darkest fantasies, but you don’t escape their consequences.

Out on the streets, not everybody agrees with him.

“There is an instinctive revulsion against taking a human life. And that revulsion can be conquered.”

Praise For…

"It’s an open wound of a play – raw and sore – but full of compassion too." —The Guardian ★★★★★

'If Gary Owen’s new play Killology shares one thing in common with his acclaimed Iphigenia in Splott, it is a fierce compassion and respect for the neglected and overlooked... While tension, testosterone and aggression all feature, the real focus is on fatherhood and legacy... Gary Owen's intelligent new play unpicks a destructive father-son relationship with precision and empathy.' The Stage ★★★★
