I particularly liked the 'Western' sets and the town on one or other of the top couple of floors. Again, don't want to give too much away but you'll get the drift,

How I did it - spoiler (I know they don't like spoilers being spread but separate a post for them would be useful I think)

- Sets were extraordinary, could have spent hours just exploring the details.
- Story however, less impressive. I don't know Woyzeck, so I found everything very disjointed. I feel like I shouldn't have had to research the story beforehand to enjoy it. Felt at times like performers were filling for time while people stared waiting for something to happen. Then when something did, the crowd would race after them at speed.
- It was very hot, particularly with the mask on. Wear something light!
- My friend had the only one-on-one that I saw all night, up on the top level, in a tent...

You can pay extra, but what that gets you I don't know.
Seriously, is anyone going with a £85 ticket? I genuinely want to know what that type of ticket gets you.
To be honest, the discussion so far, here and on blogs, is more interesting than the production.

Think of it as wealth redistribution.
dreamthinkspeak charged £25 for 'In the Beginning was the End'; that was an hour long and, in comparison, very limited in space and story. I found it very disappointing and not worth the cost. Secret Cinema at £40 plus has lower production values, very limited cast and is often a bit shambolic (which is charming but they need to get more professional as regards the experience).
I haven't seen any interesting discussion on blogs yet, if it's anything like Sleep No More then a number will sprout up for people to be able to share ideas.

1 ) Has Punchdrunk now reached a set formula for its mega-shows, with just the title changing?
2 ) Would it be better for Punchdrunk to experiment in form and process with each new show?
