Drowned Man extends into February

Published 28 November 2013

Punchdrunk’s immersive production The Drowned Man, which takes audiences into the world of Temple Studios, has announced it will continue its run until 23 February.

Theatre journalists this morning received hand written letters from Temple Pictures telling them to ring a telephone number where a message from Leland Madison Stanford was waiting. In his short speech, the studio boss with a voice that could strike fear into the heart of the bravest actor said that the cameras were still rolling through January and February.

The Drowned Man, which opened in June, takes inspiration from George Büchner’s Woyzeck to create a tale set in the faded glamour of 1960s LA. Audience members are invited to explore the vast Temple Studios, where movie stars mingle with wannabes and celluloid fantasy meets desperate reality, stumbling across vignettes and scenes as they go.

When Official London Theatre’s Charlotte Marshall saw the show, she wrote of the experience: “It is the detail that exists even when you scratch beneath the surface mixed with its heady, sexy trademark atmosphere that makes the Punchdrunk experience… Don’t worry too much about missing out on whatever action the streams of people rushing in the other direction are chasing; enter fully into the production’s exploratory spirit and your own experience is sure to reap its own rewards.”

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
