A Timeless Gathering
written by Jeremy Jagusch
It was supposed to be a relaxing evening; a sit down meal, followed by good conversation and a speaker—but things are not as they seem. Joining you at the table is a strange figure, dressed in period clothes and seeming confused. The mysterious character, identifying only as Circa, is horrified to discover they are in the modern era, and many things they remember and love are now behind glass; on shelves; written about in history books. They have no recollection of who they are, or how they got there. Some sort of historical time warp has occurred and you cannot leave unless you help . The security guard of the venue is in a complete panic—the doors have locked before, and the only way to get out is to solve the mystery.
Only pictures, items and stories from a time long ago seem to trigger memories about their identity. Stay with Circa for anecdotes from their life as they come flooding back, and piece together clues and riddles to figure out their identity...before the doors stay locked forever.
The Audience Experience
A Timeless Gathering has escape room and theatre elements. Expect to work with all your fellow audience members and the actors as you try to discover the identity of your mysterious guest.
For the majority of the performance, you will be seated around a table with your fellow audience members and the actors. Clues will need to be solved between meal courses, so be sure to arrive with an empty stomach!
A Timeless Gathering 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 10-30 (depending on the venue) so that everyone is able to participate should they wish.
