Run around the city and take on the devil

Doldrum Theatre and greenroom team up for new interactive theatre experience

Published on July 30th 2010.


Run around the city and take on the devil

Doldrum Theatre is coming back to Manchester with No Format, a computer game brought to life on the city’s streets for one day only in July.

Starting in the greenroom theatre on Whitworth Street West, groups of three audience members will encounter peculiar characters in unusual places who will give clues and set tasks as the story unfolds.

Doldrum Theatre makes site specific theatre and interactive events around the north west of England. They like to create experiences, adventures and journeys for people. Some of you may have taken part in (or even unwittingly watched) its kidnap piece Killing Time on Chorlton Green during last year’s Not Part Of festival.

Are you afraid of the devil? Take part in a life-sized computer game spanning the city centre.

But you don’t need a computer. Just a map, a carrot and your wits about you. Accept the quest to visit peculiar characters and help them locate their lost powers. Find yourself in a parallel universe where time stands still and everyone is counting on you.

Become a hero. Restore order to the world. Take on the devil himself. Win back your soul.

No Format is suitable for children over 12 but they must be accompanied by an adult. Call greenroom on 0161 615 0500 to book your time slot. Slots available every ten minutes between 3pm and 8pm for groups of up to three.

No Format, Saturday 31 July, 3pm – 8pm. Audience depart greenroom at 10-minute intervals. Duration 60 minutes. Price: £4/£3 (concessions).
