Secret Life of Humans Set for London Premiere

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…

One of SEEN’s favourite fringe theatre venues, New Diorama Theatre is proud to present the London premiere of Secret Life of Humans following a sell-out run at last summer’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

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. SEEN is looking forward to seeing the show and will be posting a review.

The Guardian

★★★★ “This is bold, beautiful, utterly absorbing theatre.”
The Stage

★★★★★ “An eclectic and beautiful production – Secret Life of Humans combines a baffling diversity of genres into a single theatrical masterpiece.”
