New Diorama Theatre are proud to present the London premiere of Secret Life of Humans following a sell-out run at last summer’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
In 1949, Dr Jacob Bronowski installs a secret, alarmed room in his house. Fifty years later his grandson discovers his secrets, unearthing his explosive role in twentieth century history, and its ripples throughout six million years of human history.
The show is inspired by Yuval Harari’s international bestseller Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind and the life of celebrated mathematician and television presenter Dr Jacob Bronowski and was written by New Diorama’s Artistic & Executive Director David Byrne, co-directed with Idle Motion’s Kate Stanley and devised by the company behind NDT’s award-winning productions of Kubrick3 and Down and Out in Paris & London.
Secret Life of Humans is a New Diorama Theatre production, co-produced with Greenwich Theatre and The Pleasance. The show is also supported by Arts Council England and PRS For Music Foundation.
Secret Life of Humans is at New Diorama Theatre 10th April – 5th May 2018.
