In 1949, scientist and mathematician Dr Jacob Bronowski installs a hidden, locked room in his house.

Fifty years later, his grandson discovers the secrets contained in the room, unearthing echoes from across six million years of human history.

David Byrne's play Secret Life of Humans was first seen during a sell-out, award-winning run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017. It had its London premiere at New Diorama in April 2018, ahead of transferring Off-Broadway.
