Secret Life Of Humans Transfers To New York

Following sold-out runs in both London and Edinburgh, New Diorama Theatre's new in-house show, Secret Life Of Humans, will transfer to 59E59, New York, as part of Brits Off-Broadway.

"bold, beautiful, utterly absorbing theatre ... It takes your breath away."

Fergus Morgan, The Stage

This new, devised theatre production is inspired by Harari's international best-seller, Sapiens: A Brief History Of Humankind, and is written by NDT's Artistic Director, David Byrne.

It runs at 59E59's Main House from 31st May to 1st July 2018. For tickets and more information, click here.

In 1949, Dr. Jacob Bronowski installs a secret, alarmed room in his house. Fifty years later his grandson discovers his secrets, unearthing echoes from across six million years of human history, told from the perspective of a century in which every year is a revolutionary year.
