News   Punchdrunk to Premiere New Exhibit Against Captain's Orders for Children and Families at London's National Maritime Museum
 
Punchdrunk is to premiere a new exhibit called Against Captain's Orders: A Journey Into the Uncarted, beginning March 28 at London's National Maritme Museum, which will run through August 2015, and will be available to schools and family audiences only.

Adults attending must be accompanying a child between six to twelve years. The National Maritime Museum holds the world's largest maritime collection, housed in historic buildings forming part of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site.

According to press materials, Against Captain's Orders "will take audience members on the adventure of a lifetime through the Museum's extraordinary collection of maritime artefacts. Visitors will become members of a real life crew and will be called on to work together to navigate their way through this highly adventurous exhibition."

Developed by Punchdrunk Enrichment, which takes the company's immersive practice into communities and creates performances with and for children, young people and the wider communities, it has previously worked with over 200 schools, creating groundbreaking educational projects which place pupils and teachers at the heart of the experience and provide a real catalyst for learning.

Against Captain's Orders: A Journey into the Uncharted is written by Simon Davies, directed by Peter Higgin and designed by Livi Vaughan.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Sept. 24. For further details, visit rmg.co.uk/againstorderspress.
