In the basement of an abandoned rug factory, deep under the streets of London, a psychologically-thrilling immersive mystery awaits you.

Rusty’s disappearance was never investigated. The ravings of his previous housemate, Alex, about a body in Borough fell on deaf ears. They were dismissed as the incessant ramblings of a ‘madman’ and confined to the asylum where he lived. 
Rusty became a vague memory, a forgotten secret, until now…
33 years have been and gone since that night. A body has been uncovered. Jack an aging rock star and actor who was at that party, has come under suspicion. In a bid to protect his public image and clear his name he has hired the expertise of a rather unusual individual, one who specialises in "resurrecting" forgotten things.
Jack invites you to become part of the story bringing you back to that fateful night; the last time Rusty was seen alive.
Unlock secrets, expose lies, and try to seek the truth about what really happened. 
This is a murder mystery like no other, and not for the faint of heart.
Be prepared to learn more about yourself than you thought possible in this fully immersive theatrical performance.
Expect Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll - Minimum age 18.

I've not done any immersive theatre before but I really enjoyed this performance. The actors played there roles incredible well and it was fun interacting with them and trying to gather the clues, it's definitely a different way to enjoy theatre!

Booked on a whim after seeing the event on Yplan. Had an absolutely great time - the acting skills of the cast were amazing, especially as a lot of it is improv. The event lasted a good two hours. If you're into immersive theatre/ murder mysteries you will love this! Visited The CoLab Factory on 1970-01-01
