This apocalypse-themed at-home escape room has got to be one of the most unique theatrical endeavours to come out of the pandemic. Here’s how Revelations works: you buy a ticket for your household, and someone from Upintheair Theatre drops off a box at your house. A walkie talkie is included. Then, you open the box and the game begins—the whole time, you’re in contact with an “Apocalypse Consultant” via walkie talkie. Later in the evening, there’s an in-person interactive performance at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. Folks in East Van, New West and Burnaby are all within the delivery zone—so if you’re an eastsider up to the challenge, grab a ticket for the end of the world.
When: Thursday September 16 to Sunday September 26, showtimes varyWhere: Online and at Burnaby’s Shadbolt Centre for the ArtsCost: $25 per householdMore Info: upintheairtheatre.com
