ImmerCity’s fifth in the immersive mystery series after our sell-out performances of: Suicide at Vine House, Death of the King, The Silhouette in the Smoke and Dead Quiet.
We are looking for actors with strong improvisation skills and an acting style that works at close range. 4/6 of the characters require a good and authentic sounding cockney or east london accent so please attach appropriate showreel if possible. The roles are all exactly the same size, there are no main roles or supporting roles, so there is a great team spirit. In terms of diversity we encourage everyone to apply, as the East End was (and is) a mixed community and we hope to represent that.
The performances are for audiences of 36 only, who are there so solve the mystery. It is somewhere between a Murder Mystery Party, Punchdrunk and the best of the Agatha Christie TV series, with a focus on tight scripting, strong improv, and a realistic, atmospheric and engaging world.
Summary: The wedding of East End gangster, Jim Slice, in July 1955 is remembered for two things: the Slice family’s notorious reputation and the fact that the priest was brutally stabbed before the ceremony could start. Despite numerous allegations and suspicions, the murder of Reverend Gris was never solved. We are calling you to step back in time, to that fateful day, and investigate the truth behind this close knit community torn apart by World War Two, rebuilding life from the rubble. Uncover a seething pit of family in-fighting, war-time secrets, blackmail, smuggling, and, of course, murder… Coming this summer to the church and surrounding graveyard of St Matthews in the heart of Bethnal Green. 1950’s wedding attire encouraged!
