The Truman Show meets an escape room live on stage - and everyone can be part of the action.
Whistleblower is a theatrical role-playing game where one willing audience member becomes the star in a live film while the rest of us help create the action.
Entering a soundproof set, complete with hidden cameras, 'the player' finds they have woken up in hospital with amnesia – their job is to find clues and uncover the mystery. Aided and abetted by a devoted ensemble of actors and audience members playing characters, bit parts and cameos, our hero's journey is sculpted through an action-packed interactive narrative that changes with every choice 'the player' makes.
Buy an interactive ticket for your chance to be part of the show – either as 'the player' or an extra in this dastardly fiction. Or buy an audience ticket and cheer on our hero as they solve puzzles, discover secrets and get lost in the cinematic story you help create together.
In the style of The Last Great Hunt’s Festival sensation, Lé Nør [the rain], the action is filmed in front of the audience and live streamed to screens above the stage. Whistleblower is a spontaneous, fast-paced, action-packed adventure that’s different every time it’s shown.
