Take a look at what they had to say, then book!

Chambers is a truly fantastic night out for anyone who’s brave enough to take the plunge into a new dimension.
The Grand Expedition – the title alone calls to mind the colonial narratives of Dr Livingstone or Phileas Fogg, so it is perhaps no surprise that this show is more interested in presenting a stereotypical version of the countries we visit.
I’m not sure whether The Justice Syndicate is a play, event, experiment, or interactive performance. Whichever of this, it doesn’t really matter and certainly presents an interesting future for theatre.
The Land of Nod is as immersive as it gets, you may not get 100% of the story but what you do see shapes your entire attitude to young people and inner-city life.

On arriving at the front door of Latvian House I am met by a very smart, besuited Italian butler who refuses to let me in and won’t really give me a clear reason as to why. Had the performance begun?
