For three weeks only, the Olivier nominated creators of Alice’s Adventures Underground, Les Enfant Terribles are teaming up with virtual reality company LIVR to present Sherlock Holmes: An Online Adventure – The Case of the Hung Parliament.
Combining theatre, gaming, escape room and board game, Les Enfants Terribles will present a brand new show for online audiences, inviting them to join live actors in following in the footsteps of the great detective himself as they encounter live performances, immersive 360 technology and more than 100 clues to discover and solve.
The Home Secretary, The Foreign Secretary and the Lord Chamberlain, have all been found hanging, in their own chambers. Each victim died on their birthday, and on that day had received a card with a mysterious quote written in it. But what does this mean? Where’s Sherlock? And what will you do next with 75 minutes left to solve the case before the murderer strikes again?
Written by Oliver Lansley and Anthony Spargo, with inspiration for the show taken from the 2016 live show The Games’ Afoot, The Case of the Hung Parliament is set to make its online debut on the 27th January 2021.
Talking about the news, James Seager and Oliver Lansley said: “Our hope and desire with this experience is to offer a fun and engaging alternative to the traditional board game! We wanted to provide an alternative and enjoyable way for families and friends to be able to come together to crack the case and enjoy a new form of theatrical entertainment during this time and also bring back some connectivity to live entertainment which has sorely been missing over the last year.”
Sherlock Holmes: An Online Adventure – The Case of the Hung Parliament will run from the 27th January until the 17th February.
