Swamp Motel’s latest experience is set to begin performances on the 24th February.

It has been announced that The Lord of the Rings actor Dominic Monaghan will be joining the cast for the third part of Swamp Motel’s online experiences.

He will be making a cameo appearance alongside Batsheba Piepe (Don Quixote – Garrick Theatre) and Dino Fetscher (BBC’s The Split, Years & Years).

This new online experience follows on from the company’s Plymouth Point and The Mermaid’s Tongue. It is set to offer film-lovers a sense of cinema, theatre-lovers a sense of live production, true-crime lovers a sense of suspense, and gamers a sense of challenge.

All three shows in the series will be performed Tuesday to Sunday weekly for newcomers to adventure through with friends. Each group will find themselves cast in this original filmic production to solve a series of clues and encounter unnerving meetings with unexpected characters. 

The Kindling Hour places audiences in the centre of a chilling underworld requiring skill and guile to evade capture, infiltrate the dark heart of a powerful organisation, and bring it down from the inside. But who is the anonymous source trying to recruit you? How can you identify the true enemy? Who can you trust?

Talking about joining the cast, Dominic Monaghan said: “The London Stone Trilogy captures everything that’s exciting about working in the digital space as an actor. I’m always keen to push the boundaries of storytelling, and Swamp Motel has done just that by creating a story that’s told entirely through exploring the digital environment. As someone driven by how technology and virtual reality can enhance how we interact with our environments, I’m thrilled to bring this interactive digital mystery to audiences.”

The Kindling Hour will run from the 24th February. Tickets are on sale now here.
