The Midnight Mission
8 February @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£8
A spooky mystery will unfold at The Bay Theatre at Weymouth College in February, and audiences are being asked to help discover clues and crack the case!
The award-winning, Bristol-based theatre company Brave Bold Drama will be bringing their brand new, playable family theatre show, The Midnight Mission, to Weymouth on Thursday, 8th February.
The interactive play has been inspired by the real-life events of the ‘Lost Summer of 1816’, when Lord Byron hosted an impromptu writers’ retreat in Villa Diodati on the banks of Lake Geneva, Switzerland. This retreat sparked two literary firsts – the first ever vampire story in The Vampyre by John Polidori, and the first sci-fi story in Frankestein by Mary Shelley.
Set in the present day, the audience at Weymouth College’s Bay Theatre will join creative agents Kahlo & Dali, from The Company of International Artists, to investigate the case of an apparently haunted artwork which hangs on the wall of Villa Diodati.
Tickets cost £8 for adults and £7 for concessions, available www.ticketsource.co.uk/thebaytheatre or by calling the box office 01305 208702.
The Bay Theatre is based in the Kimmeridge building at Weymouth College’s Cranford Avenue campus. Free parking is available in the main College car park and arrangements can be made for accessible parking.
