Caliban's Codex - Gotham Alley
From the ashes of the past
In the twelve years since Prospero's departure, Caliban has painstakingly sifted through the ashes of the books of magic, slowly piecing together a new language and a way to save this island from mankind's abuse.

Caliban's Codex is a new monologue by the writer John Knowles (Toby Belch is Unwell and Hitleria Pizzeria Parts I & II ) created with Emily Carding (Richard III - Brite Theatre).  Inspired by Shakespearean iambic pentameter, this one-woman show explores loss, abuse and magic and is a disturbing insight into Caliban's world view.

'This is a brilliant creation. Caliban finally comes into his own - battered and bruised, hideous but full of intelligence and cunning and feeling. Emily Carding fully inhabits this creature (for he is proud not to be completely human).  He rages, curses, wails and mourns, furious and frustrated. And alone. How disappointing that the show was only able to be performed twice on one day, but it will be performed again. It must be. ' Prague Fringe World Premiere 2018.


'Emily Cardings one woman piece reinterprets the monster from Shakespeares The Tempest, in a way that casts many more dark shadows onto the human race than it does onto the poor creature Caliban him/herself. Its fiercely committed and done in the round, Cardings scampering beast rising its head to eyeball us audience members with a succession of spat out criticisms about our own species mishandling of the planet.'
