Event description

The Mermaid's Tongue is an immersive theatrical thriller, made for the internet enabling your team to experience collective enterprise. Thrown into a murky underworld, your joint agile efforts are needed to track down an ancient lost artefact. Technically spectacular, the unique online experience delivered via a dedicated platform and curated by experienced actors. Discover it… before they do.

The Mermaid's Tongue is partly an escape room game, part immersive experience that requires at-home audiences to cooperate in groups to locate a missing artefact before a society of faceless villains obtains it. The Mermaid's Tongue begins with an innocent online life-drawing class until you become entangled in a conspiracy gothic art heist after receiving increasingly frantic chat messages from a woman named Daisy. IT systems must be hacked, cryptic paintings read, codes and patterns must be deciphered all while working against the time. Players will be expected to ‘drive’ the experience in their groups by following the clues and piecing together the story.

It's a tense of approximately 90 minutes. What's more, The Mermaid's Tongue incorporates another vital skill: online research, which is integrated into the game in an agile way. We encourage collaboration through screen sharing and communication. From our experience the players who enjoy it the most understand they will be required to use their initiative to follow the story.

Help is on hand via a chat function in the virtual forum, and clues come swiftly to those who ask. It's the second experience following an acclaimed production Plymouth Point that previously brought immersive theatre into people's homes, also available in Tagvenue offer (details below).
