Parsnips Youth Theatre – The Game
In 2015 seven guests find themselves at an escape room style dinner party titled The Game. The venue is an old laboratory in a remote location said to be haunted by the victims of an unethical experiment performed 40 years earlier. Served by the slightly eccentric butler, Sparks, the guests are intrigued and excited to be involved in a recreation of the original Game, and keen to hear the full ghost story from two local residents, Nancy and Robert. Nancy indulges their interest and tells them this tale.
Back in 1975, a group of scientists, led by the mysterious Dr Lead, ran an experiment researching how the mind processes fear and how we respond to danger. Seven participants, watched over by seven scientists began The Game, unaware of what they were signing up to. Over several weeks they found themselves facing their worst fears, with no way of escape. No one made it out alive.
The guests in 2015 see this as a strange story, but as the night progresses it seems that there may be some truth to the ghost stories surrounding the place. Perhaps Dr Lead made it out alive and is now repeating the experiment with seven new participants? Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to The Game … are you ready to be afraid?
