There's something distinctly different on offer in this interactive production from Oneohone Theatre Company.
It's not so much an evening or matinee performance where you fetch-up at the theatre at a specific time, but an ongoing series of interactions which take place over a period of time starting on 10 October.
The Teind is part theatre, part role playing game, part video game.
It will see audiences interact daily with characters by social media, phone, and email over the course of three weeks, before meeting one of the characters in person at the Old Red Lion (though this is optional).
Choices made during the daily interactions will determine which character you ultimately meet in person and a range of endings to the show mean you can experience a personalised horror story.

How and whether you interact with them is entirely up to you.
The story can develop without your input, but every exchange will deepen your understanding of the strangeness around you.
