The grammatically-obtuse 19;29 company make work in ‘undiscovered or under-explored spaces, interrogating the atmosphere and heritage of these spaces and creating performances in response to them.’ To that end, they’ll take you lot on a journey to a castle and a cave, grasping the key to a door. Price includes bus ticket.

Following a sold-out run in New York, this interactive, iPod-laden show unfolds as audience members are guided through their roles via video flashbacks and narrative voiceovers while maps and dialogue are displayed on screen. It’s part theatre, part live video game, part walking tour, and another part film noir.
