The Game's Afoot at Madame Tussauds
A new after hours theatrical experience to run at Madame Tussauds based on Sherlock Holmes
The Olivier nominated team behind immersive theatre events such as Alice's Adventures Underground and Les Enfant Terribles will bring their new production The Game's Afoot to the iconic Madame Tussauds museum in north west London.
A stone's throw from Baker Street, this brand new after-hours experience will take audiences back to Victorian London to delve into the world of Sherlock Holmes and will let audiences use their own powers of deduction to solve a case before the time runs out. Running on selected evenings between 18 July and 30 September 2016, the production lasts 65 minutes.
Audiences take on the role of new recruits at Scotland Yard, and follow in the footsteps of the great investigator himself as they interview suspects, read criminal reports and search for hidden clues amongst the free roaming world.
Two separate cases are on hand to solve, alternating each evening between The Case of the Poisonous Poet and The Case of the Bloodthirsty Beast, both resulting in a post celebration at the bar once the mystery has been solved.
The production is described as "The Ultimate Sherlock Holmes Whodunnitt. One Crime. Five Suspects. Over 100 clues. Solve the crime your way in this after-hours theatrical adventure."
The cast for this immersive theatrical event will feature David Ahmad, Lauren Buckley, Matthew Crouzières, Joseph Cullen, Christopher Currie, Lucy Farrett, Lucy Grattan, Richard Holt, Charlotte Newton John, Roddy Peters, Tom Syms and Kim Tiddy.
Written and directed by James Seager, Emma Brünjes, Oliver Lansley and Anthony Spargo, it is designed by Samuel Wyer, with video design by Duncan McLean, sound design by Sebastian Frost and lighting design by Mike Gunning.
Tickets for this unique production are now on sale.
