Plunge deep into the gritty, criminal underworld of 1920s London at COLAB’s new immersive experience, CROOKS 1926.
Running from February 12-March 29, game mechanics collide with a hair-raising narrative giving audiences the chance to throw themselves into one family’s brutal battle for supremacy in the heart of Elephant and Castle.
In a world where nothing is certain, violence is rampant, and bargains are made to be broken, the audience will have complete autonomy to shape their own thrilling experience.
While some might choose to orchestrate a grand territorial takeover of London or broker an alliance with The West End Boys, others might ‘go it alone’ by scheming with a devious traitor.
The choice lies solely with the audience meaning that no two shows are the same.
Lead by COLAB’s artistic director Bertie Watkins, their venues have hosted some of the biggest names in the industry such as Coney, Parabolic and most recently, The Great Gatsby Immersive Experience.
Bertie Watkins said: “Because we have just opened our new, purpose-built space, we have been able to construct an immersive world the reflects the narrative perfectly.
“COLAB Theatre continues to pioneer its own brand of immersive experience, Action Theatre.
“By combining complex game mechanics with a multi-linear story, the audience can engage in a way that genuinely affects the outcome of the show at the same time as feeling the emotional weight of those decisions.”
