World War III. Trapped underground with a sleep-inducing drug and a copy of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a company of soldiers fight to survive the terrifying reality of war as their grip on reality is put to the test.

Premiering in London at the Press Play House in January 2013, Encompass Productions presents Who Is Moloch? - a surrealist drama taking place during the third world war. An uncompromising story of loss and transformation, this new play by Pamela Carralero uses the intertextuality of the Ammonite god Moloch and William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream to simultaneously alleviate and demonstrate the toll of trauma upon the human psyche. Who Is Moloch? is a honest, unconventional play that consciously encourages audiences to risk being immersed in its world.

In the aftermath of a nuclear devastation that begins World War III, a company of soldiers barricade themselves underground with a sleep-inducing drug and a copy of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Awaiting orders as the world enters a terrifying nuclear age, tensions flare as the trauma of war takes its toll and their grip on reality is put to the test. As A Midsummer Night’s Dream sinks from the page into each soldier’s subconscious, their battle to survive the reality of war and come to terms with their experiences leads them to question: who is Moloch and what survives?

Encompass Productions are an emerging company that that create bold, experimental artistic projects.  Who Is Moloch? is their third artistic production following acclaimed stage hit What It Feels Like (2011) and upcoming short film Stormin’ Norman. The company have also produced popular west-end comedy improvisers Shoot From The Hip! and a wide variety of live events, including The Residency and Bare Essentials: The Emerging Artist Showcase.
