This is it! The opportunity of a lifetime. You’ve just read in the local paper that one of the grandest places in town is looking for new help. You’ve been waiting for this, but it seems as though the owners expect you to pass a very difficult interview.
When you arrive at the venue, you are greeted by a long time worker, who has quite a few stories to tell about your potential place of employment. In addition, it seems that the one in charge has left out various tests for you to pass, to see if you would be well suited for the job. You will need to excel at several skills and fit well with the team in order to gain one of the coveted few spots. You and your team will have to race against the clock, all while maintaining honour and dignity, in order to succeed.
Will you succeed and get to sign the employment roster? Or will you be turned away and told to never darken these doors again? How will the stories of your past write your future?
The Audience Experience
The Interview is a fun, fast paced show that allows the audience to dive into the life of a servant in the past. The tasks will range from mental puzzles to physical chores and include many fun but challenging adventures.
The audience will work independently and with their competition in order to attempt to be hired by their potential employer, all while learning about the history of the venue and those who came before them.
The Interview is a site specific promenade show that lasts 60 minutes.
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.
