Based on the true story and book by Daniel Everett, Don’t Sleep There Are Snakes brings an adventure wrenched from the heart of the jungle to the Park Theatre stage that traces how language, culture and experience shape us all.

Daniel Everett is a linguist and missionary, sent into the jungle to locate, learn to communicate with and, ultimately, convert to Christianity, a remote Amazonian tribe, the Pirahã, who utilise a language no outsider has ever understood.

The inevitable resultant struggles of Daniel to engage with these people, however, uncovers a culture like nothing previously imaginable. His discovery will blow apart modern linguistic theory, cause him to question his faith and change his, and our, perception of humanity itself.

Following the critically acclaimed The Cabinet Of Dr Caligari and Moby-Dick, award-winning ensemble Simple8 return triumphantly.
