Immersive is a much over-used term, but Bertie Watkins has proved he knows what he’s doing and sets out to prove it again in this latest show, which employs theatre, gaming and escape room activities. Audiences must choose whether they want to break the law or enforce it during a series of dangerous missions, against a background of the lawless Wild West. What Watkins and his team have often been able to do more successfully than some is to meld storytelling with game-playing in innovative ways.
From the critically acclaimed creators of Crooks 1926, ‘The Peak of Immersive,’ comes a whole new age of Bandits and Criminals. The West is a free roam Immersive Theatre experience that invites you to step foot into a real Western experience. Will you become a gun-slinging outlaw or a law-abiding marshal as you build up your town and battle for control? Turn your hand to classic cowboy tricks to earn your keep; gamble, prospect for gold, catch bandits, rob a bank, and play to win. But beware, for there is a traitor among us. The foes of the wilderness lie not just beyond the boundaries, but within… The Snakebite Bandit roams this saloon and could change your life forever. Leading immersive company, COLAB Theatre invites you back to share in a unique blend of thrilling gameplay and pulsing narrative. Here, the frontier is your backyard and as any true American expects, you have the freedom to change it all. So buckle up, Cowboy, and mosey on down this Summer for a night of darn good fun. There’s a new Sheriff in town. Age Recommendation: 13+
