Countercultural icon, postmodernist literary hero, junkie, and feline aficionado (yes, really) – William S Burroughs has left one helluva legacy. To celebrate what would have been the great sage’s 100th birthday, Guerrilla Zoo are hosting a one-off immersive experience at a secret location on February 7 from 8pm till 3am. In the seedy surreal world of ‘Interzone’, the cult beat author’s writing is brought back to life in world that has been created from his books, including ‘Naked Lunch’, ‘Junky’ and ‘Queer’. Expect an evening of intense and strange theatre. Ally Swadling
