Interactive theatre thriller with a sinister secret
The Confidence Man recruits six audience members directly into the cast, while the remaining audience views the action, with the help of an audio score.
The Confidence Man is described as a gripping thriller. The story begins when a large sports bag full of cash is brought into Peter's suburban home. This event threatens to impact Peter's family, triggering a deeply sinister chain of events including betrayal, villainy and greed.
Six audience/cast members will be equipped with a headset and oversized mask representing their character. By way of recorded soundtrack, narration and dialogue, each character will be instructed in movements, gestures and physicality towards other players.
Audience members are the cast, directed by pre-recorded soundtrack
