Presented by Punchdrunk and the National Theatre
It’s a wrap! The Drowned Man: A Hollywood Fable, the biggest and most ambitious production yet from the award-winning Punchdrunk, played its final performance on Sunday 6 July 2014.
Set amidst the fading glamour of 1960s Los Angeles, The Drowned Man explored the darkness of the Hollywood dream, where celluloid fantasy meets desperate reality, and certainty dissolves into a hallucinatory world.
This extraordinary theatrical adventure has played to over 170,000 people, each of whom have undergone a unique personal journey that unfolded across four levels of a vast central London location.
