Can you lick your elbow?
Can you wrap your legs around your head?
Can you walk through walls?

A Series of Increasingly Impossible Acts puts the audience in charge exploring the mighty failures and great triumphs of human endeavour. Each night the audience helps to choose the protagonist and the rest of the Secret Theatre Company puts them through their paces as they try to achieve the impossible in this riotous and uplifting show.

Whether it’s wrestling, singing, holding hands in an ice bucket, eating a whole lemon, walking through walls or moving objects with their mind, they must try and triumph against the odds.

With a different protagonist every night, you’ll never see the same show twice.
