The audience is in charge of exploring the mighty failures and great triumphs of human endeavour in A Series Of Increasingly Impossible Acts, an endurance test of a show from the Secret Theatre Company.

Each night the audience helps to choose the protagonist and the rest of the company puts them through their paces as they try to achieve the impossible. Whether it’s wrestling, singing, holding hands in an ice bucket, eating a whole lemon, walking through walls or moving objects with their mind, they must try and triumph against the odds.

The production is devised by the Secret Theatre Company, presented by the Lyric Hammersmith and directed by the Lyric’s Artistic Director Sean Holmes.

The Lyric Hammersmith formed the Secret Theatre Company, a 20-strong ensemble of actors, directors, writers and designers, in 2013 and has since been taking London by storm by courting controversy and sparking debate.

Please note, this show is suitable for ages 15 and older.
