Spy City is immersive theatre meets escape room: but does it deliver a bigger punch than each of these alone? Escape rooms are already taking the sense of agency, so important in immersive theatre, one step further. They place participants right in the centre of the action. This production aims to blend the two: full agency with a strong story carrying it through. If you’ve never been to either then it’s worth knowing that you shouldn’t expect to sit down and watch this show. Instead, … [Read more...]

Probably more than any other type of theatrical production, immersive theatre is exceptionally personal to the person experiencing it. So it is with the latest immersive theatre show to hit London, but I will try my best to give you an idea of what it is like to live through The White Plague at the Landor Space. Things start off nice and gently when you arrive and are given a name tag which describes something about you - … [Read more...]
