SECRET THEATRE LONDON – Secret zone 1 location, London
Tuesday 29 Oct – Saturday 30 November 2013 | PRESS NIGHT: Wednesday 6 November
Doors 7pm for a 7:45pm start | Director: Richard Crawford
Having staged productions in New York with the world premiere of Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands and in Hollywood (The Diary of A Sociopathic Freakazoid), Secret Theatre have crossed the Atlantic for their first ever London production.
“By the end of this unrelentingly Dostoyevskian descent into vice, self-abasement, caddishness and appalling personal betrayal, Dominic (Crawford) successfully sweeps such emotional encumbrances from his life with a fierce and frightening finality. A hilariously scathing serenade to the all-consuming self-absorption of the artistic ego.”
—LA Weekly critic Bill Raden on The Diary of A Sociopathic Freakazoid
Working from a foundation of daring, and immersive, avant-garde productions staged in site-specific locations, Secret Theatre foster an element of mystery by withholding the title, location and cast until the last possible moment, where they will be given a dress code for the evening and a password to enter the event.
Transcending the boundaries of traditional theatre, Secret Theatre encourage audiences to become one with the performance. Participants who register on the website and buy tickets get a series of clues regarding the show and invitations to secret free pre-events. The only clue released so far for this inaugural British outing is that the performance will be a stage adaptation of a Quentin Tarantino classic.
Secret Theatre do not work for profit, on each production Secret Theatre collaborate with up-and-coming artists and with charities where a percentage of the ticket sales will be donated to a chosen charity. For the first Secret Theatre London production they will be collaborating with artist Lauren Baker and the charity “Save the Wild Tigers”, for which Baker is an ambassador.
