The state’s most ruthless murderer has somehow managed to escape the local, high-security prison. The details are scarce but what is known is that they’re on foot and on the run in the woods around JC Slaughter Falls. The authorities have been caught napping and are undermanned, so volunteers have been called in to help hunt the killer in the night. You have responded with your crew.
Find out what it means To Hunt A Killer with the Dark Stories immersive theatre experience premiering in Brisbane on Friday 29 April. To find the murderer on the run, you will need to scour the local bushland and put together clues. Otherwise, the killer will soon be out of reach and long gone into the night.
From the rendezvous point where you meet the team coordinating the search to the end of the nighttime romp through the bush, To Hunt A Killer is a thrilling theatrical experience. It’s dark, dangerous and will be difficult, they say, but they need your help and give you a torch before setting you on your way.
Armed with your knowledge of the local area, you and your crew believe the escapee can be found within the hour. Any longer and your chances of apprehending the murderer are slim. They may as well be out of reach and long gone into the night.
As part of the To Hunt A Killer immersive experience, you will dive into the narrative, interact with actors and experience innovative live performances in this original production. It’s spooky, creepy and you’ll need your wits about you.
In Brisbane, the manhunt takes place at JC Slaughter Falls. Don’t let the name of the place deter you, but be warned that there is plenty of space to hide and plenty of grassy areas where you might see the killer on the run.
The immersive theatre experience, which has previously played out in both Sydney and Newcastle, takes place on Friday 29 April, Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May when the sun has set (8pm). It’s suitable for people aged 15 and over, but that is only if you think you have what it takes to track a killer down and keep your community safe.
