Punchdrunk and the National Theatre present The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable at the Temple Studios.
Step into the world of Temple Pictures where the Hollywood studio system meets a forgotten hinterland filled with dreamers who exist at the fringes of the movie industry. Here, celluloid fantasy clings to desperate realism and certainty dissolves into a hallucinatory world.
Inspired by Büchner's fractured masterpiece Woyzeck, this theatrical journey follows its protagonists along the precipice between illusion and reality.
The award-winning Punchdrunk return to London following The Masque of the Red Death and their New York smash-hit Sleep No More, with their biggest production to date.
