We were delighted to work with Dash Arts on The Great Middlemarch Mystery in April 2022. Part-immersive theatre experience and part-mystery game, this multi-location production put a modern twist on George Eliot’s Middlemarch and its story of the hopes, dreams, disappointments and scandals lived out within a Midlands town. The play was researched and co-developed by Professor Livesey, adapted and directed by Josephine Burton, and produced by Dash Arts.

"Immersive ingenuity... that stretches the vocabulary of the stage. Suddenly theatre is firing on its newest cylinders." - SUSANNAH CLAPP, THE OBSERVER
