If you’ve ever fantasised about being a secret agent (and let’s be honest, who hasn’t?), this show might be right up your alley. London-based immersive theatre company Secret Cinema has brought its latest show to Shanghai – a spy thriller based off the 007 film Casino Royale.
With Secret Cinema, there is no screen or stage – the audience is a part of the show. Secret Cinema has been transforming its audiences into all manner of characters from aliens to time travellers since 2007, though this is the company’s first foray into the Mainland, following on the heels of other immersive theatre experiences such as Sleep No More and The Pearl Theatre’s Moulin Dream.
For Casino Royale, Secret Cinema cuts no corners with its adults-only, four-hour-plus, bilingual immersive experience – you’re practically a secret agent before the show has even begun.
