Get Face-to-Face with Hannibal Lecter in Tai Kwun as Secret Theatre Returns to Hong Kong [EXTENDED]

Why We Recommend it

Fresh from a critically acclaimed run of Secret Theatre in London and Singapore, the team returns with the epic immersive thriller of cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter, set in the historic prison and police station of Hong Kong, Tai Kwun.


A serial killer has been on the loose. The police think they have their man. The making of a murderer. A notorious, dangerous psychopath. But is he guilty?

Based on Thomas Harris’s 1988 detective and thriller novel Silence of the Lambs and British science fiction anthology television series Black Mirror, Secret Theatre Project’s new world stage premiere invites the audience to investigate the scenes, interview the accused and solve the puzzle of the mystery.

Secret Theatre, having put on productions in LA, Edinburgh, Singapore, London and Hong Kong, is founded by Richard Crawford who is noted for his site-specific and immersive productions. He previously adapted and directed the world stage premier of Edward Scissorhands as well as Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs.

UK actor Crawford was born in Scotland and has performed in many Edinburgh festival plays and musicals, where he won best breakthrough actor at the Fringe Festival at the age of 18.
