Lent Week 5 to Week 6
Immersive theatre returns to Cambridge this February. Grey Matters is a multi-room experience based on real accounts of mental illness.
Known to all but understood by few, popular performing arts troupe, Grey Matters, are back in town. After seeing their latest show Beth meets old-hand Leo and the two form an unexpected bond. In a bid to convince her to join the group, he invites her to an exclusive, late-night Grey Matters’ performance. Stripped of their costumes and make-up, Beth soon begins to learn the real truth behind the well-known group.
Set in an old, abandoned theatre over three rooms in King's College, this immersive theatre project tackles mental illness in an unusual fashion. Based on in-depth interviews of individuals about their experiences, a variety of mediums has been used to interweave these accounts into each part of the audience’s journey. Thought-provoking but entertaining, Grey Matters is a must-see, innovative piece of theatre.
