In an epic Victorian theatre, a play begins. But the stage is barely set before it is hijacked as a charismatic performer with delusions of grandeur holds the audience at gunpoint. Challenges are met and true natures revealed, all in pursuit of brutal honesty and the catharsis it brings. The performer surges through his act, freeing his audience of the fears and doubts which hold them hostage. Through Catharsis we hope to tell the world a meaningful story that we believe will affect the way we think of ourselves, and help us realise who we really are.
An avant-garde artist forces his audience to face their darkest secrets.
