About the Show Less...

A unique 24-hour live and interactive experience from one of theatre's true innovators, Forced Entertainment. Read More >

Part game, part improvisation, this unique 24-hour live experience pits alternating pairs of performers against one another as they test their opponents with an avalanche of questions. Whether philosophical, trivial or deeply personal, answers must be invented on the spot, creating shifts in atmosphere from intimate chat to pub quiz to police interrogation.

Get involved in the run-up by submitting your own questions online. Then step in with a ticket that leaves you free to come and go, and watch the stakes being raised as the game escalates.

One of theatre’s true innovators, Forced Entertainment takes its dark and hilarious performance to new lengths with this supersized version.
