The Game’s Afoot

Two peculiar unique cases await, alternating each evening, but can you solve the case and catch the culprit before it's too late?

Running at the iconic Madame Tussauds in London, A Game’s Afoot took free roam immersive theatre and embedded the storyline so deep that all audience members could experience the narrative throughline.

We invited our audience to don their deerstalkers and become Baker Street’s finest new detective and solve the case before time ran out. Everyone was encouraged to make their own deductions by interviewing suspects, reading reports and searching for hidden clues in this multi-sensory and intricate world.

4/5

"It's great fun, simple as that"

4/5

"The mystery’s difficulty is well pitched, neither impossible to solve nor painfully obvious, while the succession of different areas are full of detailed notes, props and newspapers for you to riffle
through"

4/5

"From hidden hand-written letters to actors with an unwavering commitment to their character (that withstands even our toughest interrogation), the production quality is consistently impressive"

4/5

"With as many clues as red herrings scattered about, the intrigue is satisfyingly twisty, and meatier than most immersive theatre shows"

4/5

"The whole experience is massively fun – like an immersive version of Cluedo"

"The production has the depth and credibility we’ve come to expect from Les Enfants Terribles"

"The world you are in is beautifully realised. Holmes’s office is a riot of leather-bound books and ephemera, the docks seem to scuttle with rats, a train carriage is so effectively rendered that you could quite happily sit there for the whole hour, fantasising about the golden age of steam"

"Start bold, stay bold, and there is plenty to get your teeth into here"

"It’s a lively, fun experience for those who like to solve a mystery"

"Fine performances by some uber-talented and quick-witted actors throughout the evening"
