Inspired by Joseph Conrad's classic novel, The Secret Agent is theatre O's heartbreaking and hilarious chronicle of passion, betrayal and terrorism. Set at a time of social upheaval and growing disparity between rich and poor,at the heart of this tale is a woman fighting to protect her young brother from exploitation and violence. In their trademark highly imaginative style, described by The New York Times as, "vivid, enlightening, inventive and compelling", music hall and early cinema collide in theatre O's return to the stage after five years away.
