I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one. I knew it was interactive but was not sure to what extent. I initially thought “uh oh” when I learned the concept however I thoroughly enjoyed it!
There has been a murder on the disorient express and the audience are tasked with identifying the murderer. The cast take you back to the early 1900’s and fill in the back story where each suspect encountered the victim.
The cast guide you through the clues and offer prompts if the audience cannot work out some of the clues. There is a good balance of the clues not being too easy but also not too hard.
Throughout the investigation, the cast deliver very funny scenarios and loose references to famous fictional murder mysteries. They portray each character in a funny, exaggerated manner which adds to the great interactive experience.
Interactive can put a lot of people off seeing something however there is no pressure to do anything in this show. People can opt to do as much or as little as they wish. The audience are made to feel comfortable and are encouraged to be part of the show.
I really enjoyed this show. I found myself taking part more than I thought I would but this is how comfortable you are made to feel. This is a must for all amateur sleuths out there! If you want to put those “little grey cells” to good use, get yourself along to Surgeons Hall.
