Interview: Are You Safe Benedict Cumberbatch?

Hooky Productions on their show Experiment Human

It’s always fascinating to find out where the original ideas for a play come from, and that’s just what we hear about from sisters Maya and Rosa, who make up Hooky Productions. The pair tell us about turning a childhood idea into the central concept for their show, Experiment Human. We also hear the truth about Benedict Cumberbatch, who has a leading part to play in their show.

The interview was recorded on the same day that it was announced that the Vault Festival had been cancelled. The show was scheduled to play there in March, so at the time of recording, plans were very much up in the air. But the pair were not too downhearted and kept us entertained with their laughter and sheer weirdness of what the show offers. We do hope we get to see it in a theatre near us soon.

The show is now confirmed to play at the following venues and events:

19/ 20 July: The Cockpit (London). Tickets here.
26/ 27 July: Durham Fringe Festival, The CIty Theatre. Tickets here.
4 – 28 August: Edinburgh Fringe, Laughing Horse @ Dragonfly. Tickets here.
