‘He who has one enemy shall meet him everywhere’.Omar Khayyam, The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám
A past betrayal. A sunken fortune. And one moment that changes everything. Tickets for Swamp Motel’s new immersive experience “The Drop” are set to go live September 24th at 10am.
Following on from the success of the Isklander Trilogy (an online multiplayer mystery made of three hour long specials including Plymouth Point, The Mermaid’s Tongue, and Kindling Hour), Swamp Motel have announced that this November will mark the start of a whole new immersive experience in the heart of London. The Drop is their most ambitious production to date and will blur the lines between fantasy and reality as teams of up to 4 explore a hidden world.
It’s an ambitious and elaborate production that explores the rich history and tale of tragedy surrounding one of the world’s most famous texts, The Great Omar. Like all our work, audiences will be right at the centre of the story, a story we hope will leave them questioning what was real and what wasn’t long after they leave.Creators Clem Garritty and Ollie Jones
The story goes that in 1912 two London bookbinders created a luxurious jewelled binding for “The Great Omar”. It was shipped off to a buyer in New York but suffered a great tragedy aboard the HMS Titanic along the way, sinking to a watery grave. Until now, the secrets disappeared with it.
Not much more is known about what players can expect in The Drop except that it is based on a tale of The Great Omar. One thing is for sure, we can expect the unexpected!
Tickets for The Drop will go on sales at 10am on Friday 24th September 2021. The show will run from November 13 to December 31. Prices will start at £39.95 per person. Each experience will last 40 minutes for teams between 2 – 4.
