Step into Kirkaldy Testing Museum for an immersive experience where you will come face to face with a living giant of the industrial age and delve into the secret bowels below.
For the 150th anniversary of Kirkaldy Testing Museum, MERGE Bankside has created a shattering new piece of theatre exploring the unique Universal Testing Machine created by Kirkaldy and its legacy, asking what happens when we as humans have our truths and strength tested? How are we tested? And when we are, will we swing back or we will remain bent out of shape and broken?
The hour long performance allows the audience the privilege of experiencing one of London’s most unusual spaces in a totally unique way. This is an experience not to be missed.
"Kissin is almost like a modern-day Marlowe, and it’s so rare to hear performance prose of such beauty crop up on the London new writing scene’ Grumpy Gay Critic
