Think you can get away with murder? Then why not join in with a modern scavenger hunt based on a Gothic masterpiece?
This February, Fire Hazard Games will be launching a new urban game for adults, based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s Gothic masterpiece, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
Exploring schisms of identity, the unreliability of memory, moral conflict, terrible ambition, and unbridled hedonism, Jekyll / Hyde confronts players, asking what they would do if they could get away with murder.
Waking up to the aftermath of Mr Hyde, players are plunged into a thrilling world of investigation and moral ambiguity, as their twisted deeds from the night before are revealed. Taking on the role of Dr Jekyll, they must retrace their steps to uncover their hidden past and make decisions about their future, all while under increasing time pressure.
Presented in association with VAULT Festival and using Fire Hazard’s unique blend of mobile game, real-world scavenger hunt, narrative storytelling and performers, Jekyll / Hyde is a theatrical adventure across both the virtual and real world. Players will be guided through the game by a web app on their phones to encounter a cast of characters on their way through the dark and sinister Lambeth streets.
Players can participate solo, in a pair or in a group of up to three: all that’s needed is a phone and a desire to play!
When: 12th February – 22nd March 2020
Where: Players meet at VAULT Festival, The Vaults, Leake St, London SE1 7NN
