The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable

The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable

New trailer for Drowned Man

First Published 22 October 2013, Last Updated 22 October 2013

Dark, atmospheric, ominous. Punchdrunk has released a new trailer for The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable that, with its threatening voiceover, could be advertising a big screen thriller.

“I’m going to show you something you’ve never seen before,” the unseen narrator promises, and as this trailer is brand new, he’s definitely not wrong.

The latest production from acclaimed site-specific theatre company Punchdrunk opened at a disused Paddington sorting office earlier this summer, leading audiences through a story inspired by Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck but set in a world of studio glamour and betrayal, where they can explore the unfolding tale across four storeys of the previously vacant building.

With every effort being made to immerse the mask-wearing audience within the production, when Official London Theatre’s Charlotte Marshall saw the production, she wrote: “In each room, from a dusty grocery store filled with vintage canned peas to a wardrobe department stacked with 1940s dresses, an office concealing a book of escorts on one of its messy desks to a modest house with beds left unmade, every inch is filled with detail.”

To discover more, you can view the new trailer at the top of the page.

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.
