After an underground three month sold-out immersive production of SE7EN DEADLY SINS, the original ‘secret’ theatre company has returned with a magical new production on a secret island in East London. This latest production challenges social and political extremes that face East Londoners. Cross the bridge, join the masquerade and immerse yourself in another world!
This special performance is held at London’s newest island neighbourhood – dubbed a ‘mini Manhattan’, an area home to vibrant culture and striking surroundings. In this particular location, Secret Theatre has been working with one of London’s most prominent property developer Ballymore, which recently cemented the island’s position as a cultural hub by announcing that English National Ballet will relocate to the area in 2018.
The company, formerly known as Secret Theatre, was started by Artistic Director Richard Crawford in New York in 2007. Previous productions include a sell-out production of Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands in a disused factory in New York, Diary of a Sociopath in a Theatre Asylum in Hollywood and, in London, Reservoir Dogs, Hamlet, Richard Crawford’s original Freakazoid and most recently SE7EN DEADLY SINS, which sold out before it even opened.
To take part, buy a ticket – affordable at just £28 – and you will receive the location of the secret island, a password and all the information you will need. Buy the ticket, take the ride!
After donating to charities including The Shoreditch Trust, WWF and Save The Wild Tigers previously, Secret Studio Lab will be supporting The Sharan Project on this production, which is a UK charity supporting South Asian women who have been disowned by their families and communities due to harmful practices including forced marriage, domestic violence, honour abuse and cultural conflict – these themes are particularly prevalent to the production and across the UK today, highlighted by various stand offs between the EDL and religious communities in East London and the rise of the UKIP party.
