This is old this review, as we went a while ago, but it truly is terrific. It's best, in my opinion, to know little about it, but when you are there, get totally immersed and involved. The production design and art direction and sets and...More

I went to this with a group of friends from university and it was the best thing I had ever watched!! I love immersive theatre but this was on a different level. It was fascinating. And you could watch a different part each time you...More

Best thing I have done in London. Never quite experience any type of theatre quite like this. Go with an open mind, loose your friends and be immersed!

By far the most engaging theatre form, interactive theatre is an outstanding piece of art work. As long as you're not expecting an obvious chronological storyline, I don't think you can be disappointed by this. As we have been to a few interactive theatre productions,...More

Disorientating, arousing, exhilarating, intriguing, labyrinthine, vast, exciting, in-your-face and just great. If you don't like being out of your comfort zone, this may not be for you, but if you do, it's hits the spot like nothing else.

I went twice; each experience was totally different (my five companions had each unique experiences) -- like all very good art it reinvents itself. The dance was fresh and sensuous. The actors cast a spell on us. The sets allowed us to get lost in...More

An amazing theatre performance, which is a walk around, follow cast members into dark scary rooms type thing, that lasts for a few hours. A really amazing once in a lifetime experience.

If you haven't been to anything from Punchdrunk before then WHY?! You need to! I'm just hoping all theatre will be like this in the future!
