A brand new dedicated immersive theatre venue in the heart of London's East End
Presented and operated by Parabolic Theatre, CRYPT is an atmospheric and mysterious underground space showcasing established and emerging companies all making innovative immersive work.
Following the success of CRYPT's opening season of work titled Make Do and Mend , we are delighted to announce our new season Gothic Arcana. A collection of shows inspired by gothic fiction exploring how the biggest monsters in our lives are often our own darkest impulses, yet there is always hope for the future of humanity.
White Rabbit Red Rabbit
A play sealed in an envelope, where not even the actor knows what will happen next.
Written whilst forbidden to leave his home country of Iran, Nassim Soleimanpour distills the experience of a modern, computer-literate generation born amidst the Iran-Iraq war. A fiercely potent and an apt reminder of the transformative power of theatre. For one night only, this really is not to be missed.
CRYPT's second season, Spring/Summer 2023
The Picture of Dorian Gray
19th - 29th April
Welcome to The Crypt Club, where the whiskey flows, the music is loud and the conversations are...intimate. Your mysterious host, Mister B, will welcome you in and you'll get to know some familiar characters like you never knew them before. There's a portrait hidden somewhere that nobody likes to talk about, best not mention if you find it... things could get ugly.
We welcome you to get lost in Dorian's world of glamour, celebrity, bad decisions and of course, beauty, whatever that word might mean.
More to be announced soon...
