From the creative director of The Crystal Maze Live Experience comes a parody of John Le Carré.
Neil Connolly plays a Spymaster and the audience his spy network in a one-man interactive spy story, that's part game, part interactive theatre, part improv comedy.
From the creative team behind immersive experiences such as Heist and The Crystal Maze Experience, Rogue Productions' latest creation takes immersive theatre onto the stage at the Old Red Lion following a sell out run at London's VAULT Festival 2018, where it ran for a week and won the festival's People's Choice Award.
The show will be at the Old Red Lion from 24 July to 18 August 2018, with a running time of around 60 minutes.
Lamplighters is a (silly) but loving parody of John le Carre's Cold War masterpieces.
Expect cigarettes, whiskey, gentlemen's clubs, and a Dubliner desperately trying to sound convincingly like an Oxbridge graduate for 60 minutes.
Director, Dean Rodgers says ...
"Neil Connolly is one of the most accomplished immersive theatre actors in London, if not the world.
He's a master of interactive performance.
And this show is all about putting those skills on display, allowing him to create a world, characters and laughter without the usual big sets of immersive theatre.
Just him and an audience."
