What is it?
Like your theatre to be a bit more adventurous than just sitting in a seat for an hour? For King & Country offers audiences the chance to immerse themselves in a gaming style experience, where decisions taken in the bunker will shape the course of history!
Reinventing the wheel of immersive theatre, Parabolic Theatre present an escape room-like experience with a high level of interaction where the audience determine the direction and flow of the story.
It’s December 1940 and a Nazi invasion force has landed on the south coast of England.
This exciting interactive production offers audiences the chance to live through Britain’s ‘Darkest Hour’, making many of the tough decisions that Churchill himself made.
With London in crisis, parliament is recalled and with all the members of both houses meeting in Westminster, the audience represent a small group of backbench MPs and their families – designated survivors – who have been taken to a secure location.
They are completely unaware of the imminent events that will thrust them into the limelight and put the fate of the country in their hands. Can you save the British people from Hitler and his Third Reich, or will the war be over by Christmas?
For King & Country is an immersive theatre experience where every single night is different. The actors have no scripts, just a complete understanding of the alternative world they are creating, aided by in-depth historical research.
The audience is not just watching; at some point everyone will play the protagonist in one way or another.
