Secret Theatre debuts in UK with Tarantino classic
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
SECRET Theatre will be making their UK debut with a Quentin Tarantino classic.
The project, which runs from Tuesday, October 29 to Saturday, November 30, 2013, follows a very similar pattern to Secret Cinema, with the audience not knowing the location or the production till nearer the time.
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.
Audience members will then 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, the company collaborates with up-and-coming artists and with charities, with a percentage of the ticket sales being donated to a chosen charity. For their first London production, Secret Theatre will be collaborating with artist Lauren Baker and the charity “Save the Wild Tigers”, for which Miss Baker is an ambassador.
Secret Theatre’s previous productions include the world premiere of Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands (pictured) in New York and The Diary of A Sociopathic Freakazoid in Hollywood.
Tickets: £18 – available online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/secrettheatrelondon/. With tickets having already sold out for the October dates, audiences are advised to book early for dates in November to avoid disappointment.
Time: Doors open at 7pm for a 7:45pm start .
