Fractur is documentary theatre inspired by one of the most notorious psychological experiments in history. the Stanford prison experiment was a study of the psychological effects of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. the experiment was conducted in 1971 by a team of researchers led by Psychology Professor Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University. His methods were used by Draganic to structure long form improvisations which then became the basis of the show.

the company of eight Actors spent 6 days in A community hall in the rural Waikato town of Glen Murray working on the script under Draganic's supervision. Half the Actors were designated As guards And worked in shifts, while the other half were Assigned the status of prisoner And Agreed not to leave the Glen Murray Memorial Hall for Any reason until the six days were up. their improvisation over this period was recorded And edited And Fractur is the result. As the cast struggles, And frequently fails, to come to terms with power, or the loss of it, Fractur Asks of it's Audience "would you have done better?"
