About the Show Less...

A new theatrical adventure from Punchdrunk. Read More >

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.

Suitable for 16yrs+ 16 and 17 year-olds must be accompanied by an adult.

Please note: this is a site-specific prduction, not performing at the National Theatre. For more information, please see the website.
