Inspired by Yuval Harari’s international bestseller, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind.
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.
Following a sell-out, award-winning run at the Edinburgh Festivals, we reunite with our co-producers at the New Diorama Theatre to present the London transfer of Secret Life of Humans ahead of an eagerly anticipated New York transfer.
