They Are Watching!
London's newest immersive, multi-media experience is about to land in a sci-fi extravaganza at The Vaults, Waterloo.
The Crystal Egg Live by H.G. Wells tells the story of Charley Cave.
After watching his father dash into the night, Charley is taken in by Uncle Wace, an eccentric old man who, with his dysfunctional family, runs a curiosity shop in London's Seven Dials Rookery.
When the body of his father is found, Charley inherits the sole possession found with it - a crystal egg.
Believing the object to be of value, the family plan to sell it quickly and improve their lives.
However, one night Wace makes a chance discovery about this seemingly innocent item, a discovery that threatens to tear the family apart and plunge the world into a greater danger.
Old Lamp Entertainment invites you to The Vaults to uncover the secret for yourself.
Fusing instillation art, cinematic soundscapes, video, and live performance; this production will bring to life the work of seminal writer H. G. Wells, author of 'The War of the Worlds' like never before.
Step back into 19th Century London to discover an object of immense power amongst the dusty relics of Wace's curio shop, and come face to face with creatures of another world.
