The award-winning, critically acclaimed online show is coming to a live theatre in 2022! Stop bad guys. Save the day. Join the Squad!

It’s 1988. New York City. A team of dangerous criminals are attempting to pull off the biggest heist in history. Lives at stake and millions in cash on the line, only one thing can stop them: You! Welcome to the VIPER SQUAD! An elite team called in to handle only the most extreme circumstances. Choose your weapons. Gather valuable intelligence. Negotiate with dangerous criminals. Can your squad be the ultimate crime-stopping heroes? Think you’ve got what it takes? Welcome to the party!

VIPER SQUAD is an immersive-theatre action adventure and loving homage to 80s action-film and television classics. A show where the audience is the hero of the story and where their choices have real impact.

Written by James Dillon and Directed by David Alwyn & Sid Phoenix; the original CtrlAltRepeat online run took place during UK lockdown. It received incredible success, rave reviews and won the 2021 OnComm Award for Best Immersive Show.

 

We have bought tickets for this and will be travelling down by train. Please get in touch via email if you want to join us.

The Drop, 6th November 2021

A live show from Swamp Motel, we had to escape from an elevator, then a room, then go outside to meet a contact, before finishing in a hotel room. Essentially an escape room with a twist, it was very enjoyable, fast-paced and tense.

Echoes, 6th November 2021

We visited the latest spooky-themed Halloween show from Colab Theatre, where we worked with a priest and her assistant to investigate a haunting, resulting in an exorcism.

“AS THE SMOKE SOARS ON WINGS TO HEAVEN, SO SINKS OUR CITY”

In the smouldering promise of the fall of Troy, a mythical world of Gods and mortals rises from the ashes.

As Greece teeters on the brink of victory, the neon backstreets of Downtown Troy give way to a sprawling labyrinth hiding secrets even the prophecies could not foretell.

In this colossal playground, the furies watch on as mortals play out their fate.

And as night falls, the city comes alive.

One last time.

Crisis, What Crisis?, 21st August 2021

We had done this show before, two years ago, but it's so good that we decided to go again for its brief revival.

It was very enjoyable. Highlights were making decisions which resulted in the UK joining the Soviet Bloc, which provoked an attempted military coup to overthrow the government, a very unusual ending to the show.

The Perfect Crime, 8th August 2021

For our first event, we formed a team of 5 to steal a painting from a high-security vault, which was great fun.

Punchdrunk are the masters of immersive theatre, and their shows take place over three hours, roaming around multiple floors of large buildings. Seeing one of their previous shows, The Drowned Man, in 2014 sparked our interest in immersive theatre, and we have travelled to New York City and Shanghai to see their shows.
