The Situation Room, the latest play ‘developed with The Lowry’, takes theatre off stage and puts the audience in the driving seat, from Tuesday October 30 to Friday November 2.
The Situation Room is a theatrical adventure, in which the audience are sent to a secret location to take part. Transported to the highest seat of power in either The White House or The Kremlin during a moment of global tension, the audience is asked to make tough decisions against the clock. The choices made will shift the balance of power between East and West and write a new chapter in the history of the world.
Part of The Lowry’s ‘developed with The Lowry’ strand, which offers creative and practical support to emerging companies, The Situation Room is an exploration of power and decision-making under the conditions of war from innovative young company Oscar Mike.
