The Corley Conspiracy

by Haig. Average Reading Time: less than a minute.

As part of the London Design Festival I attended a new opera called “The Corley Conspiracy”. The event was cowritten by a friend and collaborator Sean Starke, who is also part of the MIRROR project that I’m involved with.


Based on a true story that unfolded on Usenet bulletin boards in the early 90’s, the piece which I would hardly call an opera as its delivery is more like a play with actors speaking and accompanying music is a portrayal of a paranoid mind that raises unsettling questions about a society under surveillance. Both disturbing and darkly comic, the show was entertaining and intelligent with some great comedic moments and high calibre acting.

Congratulations Sean, nice work.
