Perth’s multi-award-winning theatre-makers The Last Great Hunt combine their flair for stage innovation and offbeat storytelling in a Truman Show meets an escape room live on stage–and everyone can be part of the action.
Whistleblower, created, directed and performed by Tim Watts and Wyatt Nixon-Lloyd, is a theatrical role-playing game where one willing audience member becomes the star in a live film while the rest of us help create the action.
Entering a soundproof set, complete with hidden cameras, ‘the player’ finds they have woken up in the hospital with amnesia– their job is to find clues and uncover the mystery. A devoted ensemble of actors and audience members play characters, bit parts, and cameos to shape their hero’s journey through an action-packed interactive narrative that changes with every choice the player makes.
In the style of The Last Great Hunt’s 2019 Festival sensation, Lé Nør [the rain], cinematic mastery and theatrical magic combine wherethe action is filmed live in front of the audience on the Heath Ledger Theatre and streamed live to screens above the stage.
Buy an interactive ticket for your chance to be part of the show–either as ‘the player’ or an extra in this dastardly fiction, or buy an audience ticket and cheer on our hero as they solve puzzles, discover secrets and get lost in the cinematic story you help create together.
