Theatre Review: The Game’s Afoot @ Madame Tussauds
Share This Article:
★★★★☆ Your inner super-sleuth is about to unleash itself – underneath the (let’s not pretend otherwise) ever so slightly creepy tourist trap that is Madame Tussauds. As it turns out, Marie Tussuad’s 19th Century ode to waxy weirdness is the perfect location for an immersive underground detective story, in which we delve right into the (fatally stabbed) heart of seedy Victorian London. Based on the cultural trope of Sherlock Holmes rather than any specific story – because knowing whodunit because you’ve read the book would give the game away – groups of around 25 people set about to individually unravel the case in the absence of the famous detective himself. Armed with a map and a unique clue to start them on their sleuthing mission, the audience follows a route (think London Dungeon) around Sherlock’s dark streets, seedy bars and Baker Street Underground station. Along the way, we interview suspects in our violent triple murder and try and work out which is our ultimate culprit.
