Secret terror cells, political conspiracy, police bungling, state-sponsored bomb plots… This is London, 1896.
Inspired by Joseph Conrad’s classic novel, The Secret Agent is theatre O’s heart-breaking but hilarious chronicle of passion, betrayal and terrorism.
Set at a time of social upheaval and growing disparity between rich and poor, at the heart of this tale is a woman fighting to protect her young brother from exploitation and violence.
In their trademark highly imaginative style – (*“vivid, enlightening, inventive and compelling*” The New York Times) – music hall and early cinema collide in theatre O’s return to the stage after 5 years away.
A theatre O / Young Vic co-production.
Co-commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre and supported by the Arts Council England, Shoreditch Town Hall, and the National Theatre Studio.
