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.
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.
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.
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.
Punchdrunk, Temple Studios, Paddington closes 6th July 2014.
