Sorry to post this on a West End forum, but can anyone recommend me some good alternative theatre in London?
I heard of a cool follow-through version of Faust in a warehouse somewhere, is that still playing? What company was that and is there any other similar companies/shows around?

Hey,
I went to see Faust last year and it was really good-quite eerie but very good!
It was done by a company called punchdrunk-they have a website so take a look, however i went with uni last year and was gonna go again this year but they told us that this years production was sold out?! best to check though, think it runs until january sometime?!
Would recommend site specific theatre to anyone though-very enjoyable evening!

The company who did Faust is called Punchdrunk.

Their new show is called The Masque of the Red Death and is currently running in Battersea Arts Centre.


The entire run was sold out, but it's now been extended three months til April. The extension's selling out pretty fast too so you should get your tickets ASAP.

I've seen it three times now and in my opinion it's the best thing currently running in London. :)
