SAT 13 OCTOBER 2pm & 7:30pm
Gloucester Guildhall, GL1 1NS

*There will be a post show talk after the performance on FRI 12.

Thirty participants are invited into an intriguing theatrical game world, exploring security, profiling, freedom of expression and privacy in the age of cyber-surveillance. Mobile throughout the performance, participants collaborate, compete, investigate, debate and spy on each other.

Depending on personal and group responses to various questions posed by the game’s ‘host’, participants witness different perspectives on the action, gathering evidence from dramatic scenes and documentary media that colour their views and how they play the game. Each performance is unique in that the audience dynamic influences the outcome.

Winner of Edinburgh Fringe First Award 2017

A multimedia tour de force in English, Farsi and Arabic, this radical game of secrets is a show that gets under your skin.
