Experience theatre like never before where you become part of the story in an interactive thriller.

Don’t miss the limited season of The Confidence Man, an interactive audio theatre experience that places the audience at the centre of the action, between Thursday 22 and Monday 26 October.

The Confidence Man is accessible for everyone, either choose to be part of the cast or if you prefer, take your place in the audience and survey the action from the perimeter, eavesdropping on the characters’ most private thoughts and conversations. Each performance has an intimate capacity of 50 audience members, and the characters are played by six volunteer participants.

Being in the middle of a life and death situation has never been so fun – you could be the gun slinging drug dealer, the obnoxious teenage daughter, the smooth talking con man.

Technology has made its way into most areas of our lives and it has now hit the stage. The story uses a combination of sound track, narration and pre-recorded dialogue, where participants navigate the space, experiencing events in the first person. You’ll hear an individualised audio track, which gives you a personalised perspective.

Director Zoe Pepper tells why the audience take the stage and how important it is to keep the show fun and action driven.

‘I like all of my shows to be entertaining… It’s about old school fun and play-acting. It gives people a space to play and really is more about people rather than technology’, tells Zoe.

‘Using the thriller genre was really important to keeping it fun and keeping it action driven’.

You won’t want to miss this story unfold, with the gripping intimacy of a tale whispered in your ear. Catch The Confidence Man between Thursday 22 and Monday 26 October.
