Drama students discover Secret Theatre

Last Thursday Drama students saw a production by Secret Theatre. As the name implies, the production was secret, and there was no indication as to what we could be seeing; we only discovered this once we began to watch the show. The performance took place in the Lyric Hammersmith, and as we entered the theatre an atmosphere of mystery was immediately created by cling film that was curiously covering all the balconies in the theatre – as the production began some students recognised that the play was Woyzeck by Georg Büchner; for others this was only revealed when they were handed a piece of paper explaining the show afterwards. It was really exciting to go to a theatre production with no preconceptions of a play, an original experience that Secret Theatre have formulated and developed with great skill.
