Experience theatre as you’ve never done before with this immersive virtual reality experience combining live action theatre with animation.
Welcome to Petrichor.
Thousands applied and you have been selected.
This is a new beginning, a clean slate, a second chance.
You are an important part of this machine,
And that’s all you need to think about.
Step into a new world. A world where every single day is exactly the same.
Nothing bad ever happens. Nothing good does either.
Excitement and happiness have been traded for a world without pain and suffering.
A chance meeting brings two unlikely individuals together and offers a small glimpse of what life could be. Their newfound connection sends ripples through this ordered world as they begin to question every decision, every step and every thought they’ve ever had. Could there be something more than this?
PETRICHOR can be experienced from home on any smart device or PC, without or without VR headsets. Tickets cost £6 – you will receive an email with a link to the play that can be viewed between Mon 30 November and Sun 6 December 2020.
Enhance your home-viewing experience and get creative by ordering a VR goody bag, including a build your-own-headset for use with any smartphone and an EP of three original tracks from the show. Goody bags cost an additional £12 and can be added to your basket when booking your ticket. They will be posted out to you the week before the show so must be ordered by 22 November 2020.
PETRICHOR LIVE – Watch out for more info on a live VR experience in Corby – details coming soon.
Trigger warning: Please note, PETRICHOR includes flashing images.
