A musical all about ketamine kicks off this month

"Seated show. Because obviously you can't stand on ketamine"

We've had a controversial musical about Deadmau5 and David Hasselhoff heading to theatre as a Balearic DJ. Now, we've got a show entirely dedicated to ketamine.

Ketamine: The Musical, said to be “an immersive, participatory, psychoactive and dissociative spectacle”, runs from August 17 to 19 at New York's House Of Yes. Initially only meant to be one date, it proved so popular that two more were added.

The House Of Yes description reads: "You will not be able to unsee, unhear or unfeel the things that you will see, hear and feel. Profound and numbing, time will stand still as circus, dance, balloons, horses, clowns, sugar and music, so much music swallow you hole. You will be educated and entertained. You will leave a changed human being."

It's only one hour and 15 minutes long, but it's promised to feel like "an eternity (the fun and scary kind)".

Earlier this year, a study pointed out that ketamine could be an effective antidepressant.
