A digital performance
July 16th & 17th
on sofa share wales
Jimmy just turned 18 and so to celebrate he’s throwing the maddest house party of his life. Unfortunetly it's also going to be his last.
Created during lockdown, The Jury is a brand new interactive digital theatre show written and created by HATCH Youth Theatre MKE (16+).
In this digital incarnation of a classic murder mystery you're tasked with solving the murder of Jimmy, but out of a possible seven-house-party-suspects, it's not going to be easy.
Audiences will be able to communicate and vote along live in the chat room.
As well as this a limited number of audience members will have the opportunity to enter into the performance and act as the jury. Once they have asked questions and heard all sides of the story, they will have ten minutes to decide who is guilty and who is not.
Their fate is your hands.
