It’s 1988. New York City. A team of dangerous criminals is 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 1980s action film and television classics. A show where the audience is the hero of the story and where their choices have real impact.
The cast for the live run of Viper Squad are Shea Wojtus, George Collie, Josh McCormack, Ellen Fry and James Dillon.
The first live show from Schematic Theatre, Viper Squad is based on an original concept by James Dillon (SIREN, Secret Cinema, CtrlAltRepeat). It’s directed by David Alwyn (Secret Cinema, CtrlAltRepeat, Parabolic Theatre) and produced by Elsie Watkinson (SIREN, Rogue Productions, Layered Reality, Blast Theory) in collaboration with Colab Theatre (Crooks 1926) and CtrlAltRepeat (Viper Squad, Sherlock Holmes and the Symmetric Mail Shot).
