Richard Mylan has grown in strength as an actor and totally commands the stage
Theatre Wales

Richard Mylan has the arrogant entitlement of the rich, as multi-millionaire Killology creator Paul, yet couples it with a flamboyancy and killer delivery of his lines, to produce a wholly enjoyable character
Wales Arts Review

Richard Mylan plays the role of Paul, the multi-millionaire creator of a lethal new video game called Killology.

About the play

The critically acclaimed and Olivier Award winning Killology, a new play by Gary Owen and directed by Rachel O'Riordan, sold-out in both venues, the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff and at the Royal Court Theatre, London.

"You can't tell your mum the streets are full of psychos and it's pure fluke you get home alive every night."

A controversial new gaming experience is inspiring a generation.

In Killology, players are rewarded for torturing victims, scoring points for "creativity".

But Killology isn't sick. In fact it's marketed by its millionaire creator as a deeply moral experience. Because yes, you can live out your darkest fantasies, but you don't escape their consequences.

Out on the streets, not everybody agrees with him.

"There is an instinctive revulsion against taking a human life. And that revulsion can be conquered."
