Last year, CoAct indulged in the sensational world of immersive theatre with the hit, The Sideshow (2018). Now they invite participants to step into the shoes of the mentally disturbed in THE SEVERANCE THEORY – a four-part interactive series exploring a rare and fascinating psychological phenomenon.

Set to premiere in August 2019, WELCOME TO RESPITE will mark the first chapter of this chilling journey. Designed for only a single audience member, this 30-minute encounter offers you a gateway into the past as you re-examine a charming childhood memory. It is hoped that you might find solace in this moment, as respite is only temporary when you’re at the whim of your own mind.

Over the course of the series, participants will experience a first-person account of living with mental illness while navigating the disorder from its symptomatic beginnings to manifestation. The lines between reality and the subconscious mind become increasingly blurred as you grapple with the demons of your past. Join them this August in exploring the formidable intricacies of the human mind in THE SEVERANCE THEORY: WELCOME TO RESPITE.
