The immersive film and participative theatre experience transports attendees, or rather their allocated personae, to a Secret World of cinematic fantasy and dystopian possibility.

After the huge success of their Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back performance, Secret Cinema return with a new show that takes them back to their secretive original format: details of the film screening, immersive theatre performance and even location are kept strictly under wraps.

Titled Tell No One, the latest show follows the style of previous Secret Cinema experiences Miller's Crossing and The Shawshank Redemption, in that attendees are allocated a role to play before entering a meticulously created world based on an iconic film, finding themselves confronted with the conceits, quests and moral quandaries of the plot, which form the many intertwining threads of the performance.

Though the experience is based on a film, attendees will find that the explosive, political issues focused on have a scarily realistic bearing on our real lives. Secret Cinema is best enjoyed if you throw yourself into it fully, dressing up, keeping your character's initial appointments, engaging with your various missions, but also allowing yourself to be lead astray, getting lost in the labyrinths of the performance, playing out both the existential fears and bacchanalian delights of human life.

Tell No One from Secret Cinema runs until 20 March, tickets are available at secretcinema.org.
