'One of the UK’s most singular theatre companies' The Guardian

The Destroyed Room takes inspiration from Jeff Wall’s famous photograph, which shows a ransacked room, every item of furniture torn up and destroyed.

The show begins with the recording of a debate. A group of guests gather. They drink wine, discuss things they have witnessed and debate the ethics of watching. Cameras film every word and every reaction. As the debate intensifies, slowly and as if in a dream, the atmosphere begins to change.

The Destroyed Room is about what we see and what we turn away from. And what’s coming.

A co-production with Battersea Arts Centre. In association with Tron Theatre and Eden Court. Conceived and directed by Matthew Lenton. 

Age Recommendation: 16+
Running Time: approx 90 minutes




Vanishing Point are one of the leading Scottish theatre companies. They make visually and aurally stunning work which is incredibly emotionally affecting and at the same time engages rigorously with topics that are relevant to the contemporary world we live in. We are really proud to be co-producers of this new work and to be hosting its London premiere. This is a return to London after an absence of a number of years for this extraordinary company.
