SHELTER: Underground Immersive Experience
In the Farrier Bar, hidden under the Queen’s Arms hotel, the brick walls of a late-night supper club will transform into a secret underground bunker.
Up and coming theatre company The Drawer Productions presents SHELTER as part of the 2021 Anywhere Theatre Festival. The immersive theatre experience allows audience members to walk amid the story as it unfolds.
Immerse yourself in the world of the Chapman’s. A family just like any other in 1980’s Brisbane, with more than a few secrets, tucked away.
SHELTER tells the story of three generations of Chapmans as they navigate family, loss, and control in the underground bunker they have made their home. Unlocked by the latest child in the Chapman line, you are led into their once-inhabited subterranean world that saw her grandparents live out the last of their days and her mother and uncle dream of freedom. Watch the daily routines, habits, and traditions of the family’s legacy persist throughout history. Questioning just how much control we have over who we become.
Grab a drink at the bar then head in to discover for yourself, the inescapable link between our past, present, and future.
