A proud man struggles to break through as a writer. He is in a constant battle between his environment, the salivating monster inside him and the grinding, satanic mills of progress.

Hunger is a dark, grotesque and provocative performance of human survival and man’s need to express himself.

Written by Knut Hamsun in 1890, Hunger is widely regarded as one of the first novels to describe the interior of the human mind, while Hamsun himself is considered one of the founders of the modern novel. Pickled Image‘s adaptation explores the salivating monster of Hunger, touching on madness, delusion and creative genius with just a few puppets, two puppeteers, minimal props and a haunting soundtrack written by Bristol composer Simon Preston.
