If you could cure thousands of a fatal disease by experimenting on a single child, would you do it? That’s the question posed by the narrator of this story, their personal complicity in the experience a slippery possibility.

"Mark Ravenhill keeps things creepy in his monologue, The Experiment, in which he plays the satiny-voiced, slippery narrator… The story, and the narrator's level of complicity, keeps shifting. Ravenhill asks us to consider which version, if any, might be acceptable, and how much we might be willing to avert our eyes from for the greater good." - Independent

"Crammed with slippery language, it evokes a vortex of atrocity from fairytales to Mengele and Medea." - The Times

The Experiment premiered as a part of the Terror Season at Southwark Playhouse in October of 2010.
