Check out the video teaser for The Shadow Space – a combination of immersive theatre, escape room, and murder mystery. Described as a “near death experience,” the play features an interesting twist: audience members are ghosts who must find ways to solve the crime, although their ability to communicate with the living and interact with the physical world is limited. Multiple endings are possible, depending on audience interaction.
The Shadow Space sold out during its run this spring, but it’s coming back this October. The original production was reportedly less sinister than advertised (“After being primed for creepy environments and eerie characters, it was slightly jarring to discover myself in a merry, energetic dinner party setting, solving a mystery led by jovial ghost hosts“); however, the Halloween version may be readjusted to suit the season.
The Shadow Space is scheduled to run nightly except Mondays from October 8 through November 3. The location has yet to be revealed, but tickets ($60) are on sale now. Get more information at: theshadowspace.com.
