One body in the river.
Six statements.

Thirteen years of questions.

"Immersive work at its best." ★★★★★ | THE STAGE


Over a decade ago, Scott Davies drowned in the heart of Cambridge. After reviewing the evidence available at the time, the inquest returned an open verdict.

Under amendments to the Justice Act 2021, coroner's juries have become a popular means to clear the backlog of unsolved deaths. Together with thirteen others and a team from the Coroner's Office, your duty is to determine the events that led up to Davies’ death.


The Inquest players are invited to join other players at a central London office location to consider a case Live actors greet them and will assist, but not guide, their deliberations.
Players are presented with physical evidence, sworn statements, and a computer database relating to an unsolved death from more than a decade ago.
Players work with the characters and unravel the truth, finding a labyrinth of clues and lies to unpick, including hacking into telephone systems.
When the time is up, players are asked to vote on a conclusion: what happened to Scott Davies?


Can I play in a group? 
Tickets are purchased individually and all players attending for the same time slot will play together. You will be mixed with other players who have bought tickets for the same show. Please note: the show requires a minimum of five players to function, and shows that have not sold five tickets are liable for cancellation 48 hours before the show. Should this happen, all bookers will be refunded or transferred to another booking free of charge.

How interactive is this?

As it's performed by experienced immersive theatre actors, The Inquest will respond to how you approach it as players. The facts of the case stay the same, but how you discover them may reflect what you do. 

Do I have to participate?
The Inquest can be played at any level you're comfortable with. There's room for players who want to ask lots of questions and dive into the detail, as well as those who'd prefer to sit back and observe. If you wish to attend and simply watch and listen, you are welcome to - though we highly encourage you to use your vote at the end.

Read the evidence. See the bigger picture. Find the truth.

Content note: the show contains discussion of suicide, drowning, and intoxication.

    A lot of thought went into this and we had a great time trying to piece the clues together. A great event for team bonding, but probably best undertaken sober :). The performers were first class and our Jury supervisor worked hard to ensure we had as many facts as possible. They stayed in character and were very convincing. Recommend this for anyone who really wants to put their wits to the test.

    This was great fun, well organised and detailed. Felt quite real too. Really well thought out and entertaining. I’ll be trying the Cold case next, time to sleuth again!
