A Knock at the Door

A Knock at the Door

Suitable for one room historic venues.

written by Jeremy Jagusch

It was an odd invitation. Someone well known in town has invited you to the venue, to inform you of what they claim is an important message. However, when you arrive with the other guests, your host is nowhere to be found. Just when you are considering leaving, there is a knock on the door, and a messenger appears.

The messenger is Robin, a vagabond who used to frequent the streets of this town begging for food and money. Robin was often avoided by the members of the community and eventually faded from the town’s memory. Robin has been promised a large sum of money if they deliver this message and follow all the instructions given to them. It appears that your host is in peril and needs you to solve a series of clues in order to find them.

Deciding to lend your aid, you must join forces with Robin, who seems to hold the key. Your host is the only one who understood Robin’s unique personality and views on the world. It seems Robin’s memories, combined with the letters left to you, hold the answer to rescuing your host.

The Audience Experience

Planning on Attending A Knock at the Door?   Here’s What to Expect!

A Knock at the Door employs both escape room and “choose your own adventure” elements, so be sure to think critically before making any choices!

All the choices you make impact the clues and the story you are given. A seemingly innocent choice made at the beginning may have long lasting consequences for the characters . . .

A Knock at the Door is a site specific show that takes place in one area of the venue and lasts ~1.5 hours.

As an interactive experience, audience sizes are limited to 20-30 (depending on the venue) so that everyone is able to participate should they wish.
