Ward of Shadows is an interactive horror experience featuring a classic horror story line and characters. Set in an "old mental hospital", the story revolves around the unsolved murder of a young patient. It is up to the audience members to solve the mystery, by investigating the two main suspects - paranoid delusional, Timothy, and aggressive psychotic, William, whose spirits remain trapped in the building.
In this show, you are invited "to enter an old mental hospital where you are met by Lazenby, a journalist investigating rumours of paranormal activity at the site. Locals are saying that recent construction around the building has awoken two spirits who reside in the very foundations - two patients whose ancient grudge has kept them trapped there. One of the spirits has to go, and it's up to YOU to decide which one".
As you watch and listen to the story unfold, immersed in the dark world of lunatic ravings and twisted nightmares, you will be asked:
Can you see through the hallucinations and the delirium? Can you discover the truth? Can you make it through the night?
You are not only an audience member, but also a vital part of the story as you will take on the role of investigator, interrogator and finally juror as you try to solve the puzzle of the Ward of Shadows.
If you think you are up for this unique, interactive, horror-themed challenge here's what you need to know.
