Punchdrunk has returned! The greatest immersive theatre company of all time is back after eight long years away. ‘The Burnt City’ is its huge new show based in two massive former military arsenal buildings in Woolwich (easily accessible by DLR, rail and – very soon – Crossrail).
Set in the moments surrounding the Trojan War, each of the two buildings in ‘The Burnt City’ represents a distinct, insanely detailed world full of mysterious characters, that you’re free to wander around at will. Troy is a dense sci-fi city aesthetically inspired by Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’; Greece is a desolate wasteland full of jaded soldiers and eerie memories of the ancient gods.
Every Punchdrunk show is a monumental event, and the huge costs in staging them means that tickets aren’t cheap: standard price for entry to ‘The Burnt City’ is is £55-£88.
However, Punchdrunk and Time Out recognise that not everyone can afford this, and we’ve exclusively teamed up to bring you £25 rush tickets for every single show: truly great value for this awesome spectacle.
