I’m still not sure what the most frightening element of In The Shadow It Waits really is - is it the events that happen to the characters, or is it the idea of a very extended period of lockdown? (An exact number of days is given to the audience, but let’s not give everything away.) A relatively short live experience, the set-up is quite straightforward, and, at least in terms of the background story, believable. While the consequences of playing an online game - which can actually be viewed … [Read more...]

One of the great aspects of going to the Vault Festival is seeing something that is not quite finished but is being ‘beta’ tested with a live audience - in theatrical terms, a ’work in progress’ - and that is exactly what I did with a visit to Dave Bibby’s new production, Life: The Gameshow.

It’s 1946 and the Marchioness du Jour, a venerated prima donna and a wonderful singer, is set to perform at tonight’s grand opening.

Nestled in Lewis Cubitt Square in King's Cross you’ll find three, unassuming, white shipping containers, each with a word painted on it; “SÉANCE,” “FLIGHT” and “COMA”. Inside, three intense and immersive shows form part of Darkfield, an anthology that brings us closer to some of our greatest fears as humans, in life and in death.

This year it’s been taken over by Myriad Immersive to put on Spree a piece of immersive theatre which to quote their promotion material is: 'An intimate immersive experience inspired by the hit Netflix series Mindhunter and pioneering crime podcast Serial'. You and your team are agents … [Read more...]
