Direct from a sensational season at the Young Vic, Golem, created by 1927 transfers to the West End for a strictly limited time this April.

This ground-breaking production is ‘Funny, unsettling, unforgettable’ (Times) and ‘the most original production in London’ (Sunday Express). Golem is brought to you by the creative minds behind the smash-hit The Animals and Children took to the Streets.

With stunningly original animation, entrancing music and live performance, Golem explores one of the great questions of the modern world - do we control technology, or does it control us?
