Background


Developed over the past year with the support of Interactive theatre stalwarts the Lab Collective (Incoming/Exodus, The 'Neath) for this world premiere at the VAULT Festival, A Wake in Progress puts you in the driving seat.


From casting the actors to the back stories of the characters, every aspect of the show is decided live by that night's audience, building to a completely new ending written live on the night every night. Come laugh, cry and mourn with us!
