Internationally acclaimed theatre company Punchdrunk are returning to London for the first time since 2014. Following a break from the capital, with sell-out international productions and their award-winning foray into TV, with The Third Day, the company are back in their home city to premiere their first major new show since The Drowned Man.

“As the smoke soars on wings to heaven, so sinks our city.

In the smouldering promise of the fall of Troy, a mythical world of Gods and mortals rises from the ashes.

As Greece teeters on the brink of victory, the neon backstreets of Downtown Troy give way to a sprawling labyrinth hiding secrets even the prophecies could not foretell.

In this colossal playground, the furies watch on as mortals play out their fate. And as night falls, the city comes alive. One last time.”

The Burnt City will be Punchdrunk’s most ambitious production to date, opening in the wake of long-running international productions Sleep No More in New York and in Shanghai. The Burnt City will take place in the company’s new home in Woolwich Arsenal – taking over three Grade II Listed Buildings as part of the Royal Borough of Greenwich’s new creative district, Woolwich Works.

A limited season is on sale until 28th August 2022 with previews commencing on Tuesday 22nd March in the company’s new home at Woolwich Works. The official opening will be on Thursday 21st April and tickets are on sale now!
