Punch Drunk – A Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable @ Temple Studios (Tuesday to Saturdays until 30th December)
Punch Drunk – The Secret Cinema of the theatre world present A Drowned Man. A theatre experience that spans over 4 levels of what used to be a large Royal Mail sorting office and is now re-envisaged as Temple Studios.
Inspired by Georg Büchner’s fractured masterpiece Woyzeck, The Drowned Man is a truly immersive theatre experience set amongst the fading glamour of 1960s Los Angeles and explores the darkness of the Hollywood dream. This unconventional theatre experience gives you the audience free reign to navigate the vast world of the production following whichever characters you choose across the 4 level creative space. The more you immerse yourself in this theatrical world the more you will gain from the experience
