2 players. 30 minutes. 1 Ultimate Prize.

Welcome to First Person - your race to the top of life's success mountain. Do you want to prosper in the cut-throat world of adulthood and find happiness? Then First Person will prepare you for the climb to the summit of life's health, wealth and well-being peaks.

Two players enter the labyrinth of a virtual world and compete for the ultimate prize: happiness. The First Person to complete the game and find happiness is the winner! It’s that easy. All they need to do is follow the voice of the unseen Guide and they’ll be just fine. But in our harsh world of winners and losers, is the Guide aiding their journey, or relishing in their demise? 

Made especially for public spaces and influenced by video games; First Person is a quirky fusion of fast paced narrative, physical theatre and silent disco technology. Grab your headphones, predict your winner and cheer them on to the finish line.

Success Mountain is waiting...

Running Time: 30 Minutes

Made for 11+ but suitable for all ages | Promenade performance so wear comfortable shoes
