Agent Venture

Last weekend, the Love Popups London gang attempted to work their way through both Agent Venture adventures. We started off with The Heist, which we had play-tested a little while ago. But as the game had been remodelled and extended, we got to try it again. It is now almost twice as long as it…

Agent November – Virtual X-Caper

TodayI was invited by Love PopUps London to try out the brand new online escape game Virtual X-Caper by Agent November. I’ve played some Agent November adventures before and they’re always very immersive and fun, so I was very much looking forward to this actual escape adventure. I really miss escape rooms, so getting a…

Hide And Shriek – Alien Escape

Being in lockdown due to the corona virus pandemic, I thought I’d use the time to work on my backlog of shows I never got around to review back when I actually saw them. I just don’t always have the time to write reviews right away and sometimes they just fall into an eternal backlog…

The Panic Room – CSI Grounded

The Adventure Is Real

On Thursday night I was invited to try out the new immersive game by The Adventure Is Real, a combination of roleplaying games, boardgames, and immersive theatre.

Solaris

In late October I ventured out to Hammersmith to see the brand new production of Solaris at the Lyric Hammersmith, which is a rare treat as not a lot of sci-fi makes it to the stage for adaptation. Based on the well-known novel by the same name, the play revolves around the occupants of a…

Jekyll / Hyde

Last night I was invited to try out Fire Hazard Games‘ newest street game, Jekyll/Hyde, currently hosted at the Vault Festival. The immersive game is set up for teams of one to three players and works through a website that provides the teams with clues and riddles to solve. Jekyll/Hyde runs for approximately two and…

The Wolves In The Walls

Though I was not in the company of children in the appropriate age range, I really needed to experience this one! Another play based on the work of one of my favourite authors, not something to be missed. So I grabbed a friend and headed out to see The Wolves In The Walls at the…

Crooks 1926

Last week I was invited to come along to Colab Theatre’s newest production, Crooks 1926. This immersive theatre project takes us back to 1926 to be thrown into the seedy underworld of London’s crime gangs and their territorial rivalries. Crooks 1926 is staged at the Colab Pub, a short walk from both Borough and Elephant…

Crisis, what crisis?

Last Friday, I got to check out the new Parabolic Theatre production of Crisis, What Crisis?, taking place at the Colab Factory, which has by now become a somewhat familiar venue. This interesting immersive experience lets you try your hand at running the government, of sorts. Set in 1979, the Labour Government has a working…
