The SOLD-OUT Act One of Captivated returns for ONE WEEKEND ONLY!
August 10-12, 2018.
This is your chance to see how the story of Captivated begins--or to refresh your memories or try a different experience within the party!
The original description of the event continues below!
It's been a while since you had pizza and drinks with your friend Victoria, so you're excited that she's invited you to hang out tonight!
She's promised an intimate evening of just a few people at her place, including her friend since childhood, Ely, and his new girlfriend. Although you've never met either of them, Victoria promises they're perfectly wonderful people.
Once you get there, however, you decide to look a little deeper...
"Captivated: An Obsession in 3 Acts"
Act One: Justine
Created by Erik Blair
Produced by Thea Rivera and They Played Productions
They Played Productions announces its first immersive production, "Captivated: An Obsession in 3 Acts." This is the remount of Act One: Justine. It's a small pizza and drinks dinner party for you, your 'friend' Victoria, and a few other people. Drinks and food will be provided.
On the surface, this is simply a chance to have some fun for an evening. But once you start looking deeper, you may notice that some pieces of the story don't quite add up. Through group and individual scenes and moments, you will begin to realize that this party isn't quite as easy as it appears to be.
It's a modern retelling of a classic horror story, one based on obsession, drive, pride and just a few dead bodies.
"Justine" is the first act of a 3-part story. Audiences can enjoy each part individually or experience all 3 over the course of this year in order to have the fullest possible immersive narrative. It is a modern version of a classic horror tale, told through the various perspectives and interactions of the guests at a dinner party. Each of them has what they appear to be on the surface and another story happening underneath. Through each of the 3 acts, we will be exploring need, love and the true depth of what someone is willing to do to achieve their goals--at any cost.
The experience will last between 60-75 minutes, depending on audience's choices.
The exact location of the apartment will be sent to you within 24 hours of your scheduled visit. You will also receive a questionnaire from Victoria to fill out. While it is not required, you will find that you will enjoy your party better if you respond.
Victoria is SO looking forward to seeing you again!
This is an immersive experience designed for audience members 21+, as both food and drinks will be offered to audience members. It will take place in an actual apartment, although depending on audience choices, there may also be a car ride.
Please be aware that this is a fully immersive event and audience members may encounter the following themes, depending on their interactions:
* Psychological Horror
* Obsessive Behavior
* Sexual Themes
There are no aspects of haunts, extreme immersive acts, gore, actual confinement or any other harder aspects to this chapter of Captivated. It is designed to affect your mind and not your body.
While there may be light touching between audience members and cast, it will be by audience consent only.
Due to the nature of this event, limited audience mobility is necessary. Audiences will be expected to traverse an apartment building lobby and enter an apartment.
