London is going to be virtually dead, unless you can stop the impending zombie virus.
That is, according to a virtual reality experience coming to east London next month.
Virtually Dead — taking place at a secret warehouse location for two weeks only — invites brave souls to don a VR headset and save a post-apocalyptic Arizonan town desert from the marauding undead.
The twist is that the warehouse is also populated by 23 actors, and the fusion of live performance and VR will, we’re told, ‘blur the lines between what’s real and what’s not’.
We have to admit the whole thing sounds pretty terrifying, and the fact they’ve got Alice Peperell (previously production manager at You Me Bum Bum Train) onboard suggests these guys know what they’re doing.
In short, if you dream of getting up close and personal with hordes of flesh-eating undead, yet want to remain alive to pop down the pub afterwards, this one’s for you.
Virtually Dead takes place in east London from 19 March-3 April. Tickets £30+booking fee, and on sale now.
