Central London: Prophecy – Behind Closed Doors at The Charterhouse

Date: 01/04/2017 at 12:00am to 30/04/2017 at 12:00am

Cecily Ashe has been murdered, strange occult symbols carved into her flesh. Her body lies at the Charterhouse. The queen’s spymaster, Walsingham, suspects links to a plot to overthrow the crown and calls on international man of mystery, Giordano Bruno to recruit a band of fellow spies – men and women of equally shady backgrounds – to help him uncover the truth. Will you join him?

Get ready to don your cloak and explore the historic cloisters of the Charterhouse, hearing from Bruno himself about the facts surrounding Cecily’s murder, the dark omens that are being whispered and the secrets of Mary Stuart’s supporters.

An immersive participatory experience produced by Look Left Look Right and written by Katie Lyons.

Price: tickets £17.50 in advance from here. Includes special edition copy of Prophecy.

The show is 45 minutes long. Performance times: 4.30pm, 6pm, 8pm.

Dates: Saturday 1st April, Sunday 2nd April, Saturday 8th April, Sunday 9th April, Saturday 22nd April, Sunday 23rd April, Saturday 29th April, and Sunday 30th April
