If you haven’t seen it yet, you have three weeks until Temple Studios closes its doors to The Drowned Man: the most ambitious production yet from the award-winning immersive and physical theatre group, Punchdrunk.1401814_1432491546963150_1811101450_o

Set amidst the fading glamour of 1960s Los Angeles, The Drowned Man explores the darkness of the Hollywood dream, where celluloid fantasy meets desperate reality, and certainty dissolves into a hallucinatory world.Fernanda-Prata-Jesse-Kovarsky.-Punchdrunk.-The-Drowned-Man-A-Hollywood-Fable.-Photo-Birgit-Ralf-0399

This extraordinary theatrical adventure holds up to 600 audience members during each ‘viewing,’ each of whom have undergone a unique personal journey that unfolds over the course of three hours and across four floors of the vast Temple Studios.New_20130709_TimeOut_Punchdrunk__MG_1636-Edit

Having experienced my fair share of alternative theatre, I can vouch for this one – it is truly unbelievable. Curiosity is key – explore, go it alone, and hold the gaze of the performers and you never know where they might take you – and only you. tn-500_thecompany.punchdrunk.thedrownedmanahollywoodfable.photobirgit&ralf(0456)
