The Voice in the Walls by Imaginary Theatre

21 September - 2 October 2015

Victor and Mary are voices from the past lingering like ghosts in the walls of Old Government House. They need your help and they need it now. You'll need to follow their instructions. Traverse twisted staircases. Sneak across creaking floors. Search through hidden spaces full of secrets and shadows whilst remaining completely unseen.

Don't worry, you'll be ok. Just keep calm, listen carefully, and do exactly as they say.

Part game, part audio tour, part theatre, The Voice in the Walls is an audio-immersive, site-specific performance for 9-12 year olds set in one of Queensland's most historic buildings, Old Government House.

Combining technology, history, time travel, and a healthy dose of creepy, The Voice in the Walls puts audiences at the centre of the action, equipped with headphones and a wireless device, sent in to explore the halls of this grand, supposedly haunted mansion.

Sure to be unlike anything they've encountered before, The Voice in the Walls is an utterly thrilling performance experience, created especially for 9-12 year olds.

So come in. And listen for the voice in the walls.
