There has been a stabbing. A young man has been killed and the main suspect is on the run, somewhere in Croydon. The police are holding a press conference that you have been invited to about the progress of their manhunt. The case seems straight-forward, but the motivations are anything but. Something dark and dangerous lurks beneath the surface. Scratch at that surface for long enough, and who knows what horrors may be uncovered.

Land of Nod is part treasure hunt, and part theatrical adventure. Join the manhunt for a murderer in this interactive and immersive theatrical experience taking place across central Croydon, and play a part in the resolution of an ancient and horrific crime.

Developed with assistance from Croydon-based charities Lives Not Knives and Ment4, Land of Nod is based on the real-life experiences of those who have been affected by knife, gang and drug crime. Parabolic Theatre is a Croydon-based company, registered within the borough, with strong roots in the local community. Land of Nod is a part of the Croydonites festival, supported by Arts Council England, and the Croydon Council cultural partnership fund. 

Please note that Land of Nod is a promenade performance, and audience members will be required to walk some distance to get the most out of the show. Comfortable footwear is strongly recommended. Audience members with impaired movement should contact Parabolic Theatre at to ensure suitable arrangements are in place for them to fully enjoy the experience.
