We are introduced, after being name-checked and tagged, to The Platform, a pharmaceutical company that has come up with the perfect drug that could save the health care system. Or so they say.
The play launches with a smart little-choreographed routine from the cast (and some extra actors), which culminates in company staff member Amy Brown (Jemma Bentley) being sacked and expelled from the building. As Bentley is a cast member, we, of course, know that her return will happen, but in what form?
What happens now, is a complete split in the show, as us, the lucky few, become part of a splinter group and we meet outside in the street, Amy Brown again, who has now become undercover agent Sam Carter (not of the Stargate SG1 kind though).
The main actors involved in my section, Bentley, Dean Adams as Tom Knox and Joe Conroy as Scott Bentley kept the drama going, while Bentley and Adams kept a nice playful edge to their buddy partnership. It was great fun, and some really inventive interactive theatre that harked back to 2016's Flash Festival shows The Hold Up and The End, but upping the interaction element, certainly in my section.
