Times: Fri: 3:30pm & 6pm |Sat: 10:30am & 2pm

Location: Lincoln Drill Hall

As the press gather for a big announcement on the new environmental bill, a politician’s future hangs in the balance.

Thrust into the heart of a spy thriller, you’ll navigate the political scandal of the decade. Staking out a multi-storey car park, you must use every mode of surveillance to hunt down facts and intercept evidence. As agents of the state you will expose a complex network of corruption that threatens to destroy the UK’s path to environmental progress.

A Moment of Madness explodes out of the confines of the theatre into the gritty reality of the city – fusing compelling drama with the excitement of real-time gameplay to create a visceral new live experience.

Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Originally co-produced with Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Flatpack Festival. Supported by Birmingham Open Media, Sir Barry Jackson Trust, John Feeney Charitable Trust & Unity Theatre Trust.
