Welcome... watchers of illusion! The doors to the world of adventure are open again, but dare you enter?
Following last year's sell-out Edinburgh run and its highly successful UK tour, Knightmare Live is back for Level 2 with a whole new show. Expect the usual cavalcade of adventure, characters, puzzles and monsters in this critically acclaimed stage adaption of the cult TV classic, as well as "...at least 40% more danger
Each day one member of the public will be guided by two guest comedians through Treguard's dungeon but will they succeed in their quest, or fall foul to one of Lord Fear's schemes?
Hosted by a new Treguard (Paul Flannery of Rayguns Look Real Enough, "musically talented... thoroughly entertaining" Three Weeks, London Cabaret Awards Nominee) and featuring teams of top comedians as daily guests guiding an audience member Dungeoneer through Lord Fear's epic realm, Knightmare Live promises to recapture the essence of everyone's favourite pre-CGI helmet based role-playing children's television show.
The interactive cast are present as ever and feature the talents of Tom Bell of Tommy and the Weeks, ("Bell is good, he's almost supernaturally good" The Scotsman), Paul Duncan McGarrity ("Like a very tall, funny, excited child" The Scotsman), Jessica Fostekew ("Intelligent humour and sharp, insightful stand up" Evening Standard) and Matthew Highton ("Something quite special" Chortle), bring to life characters old and new to help and hinder the Dungeoneer with riddles, monsters and challenges.
Dungeoneers have been invited to compete in the most coveted of quests; only playing the game can answer those questions... Time turns, the path is open and the greater game returns...
The only way is onward, there is no turning back...
