THE HIDDEN ROOM
The Hidden Room is a theatrical curiosity shop that rides the intersection between performance and technology, past and future, what is accessible and what is hidden. We employ the world’s top scholars, technologists, and theatre-makers to create the most accessible, immersive, entertaining, and educational theatre experiences possible, bridging the gap between early modern classics and tech-forward new works.
The Hidden Room's focus is currently sharpened towards collaborations with academics, attempting to resuscitate lost art forms, recover faded playing conditions, and illuminate old texts through the marriage of research and practice. Shakespeare variations such as Tate's Lear, der Bestrafte Brudermord, and now John Wilkes Booth's cutting of Cibber's Richard III have all seen new life and new audiences through this work. We are proud to call many of our scholar/heroes like Oxford's Tiffany Stern, the Globe's Farah Karim Cooper, and the Harry Ransom Center's Eric Colleary colleagues and co-workers inside the Hidden Room.
