ACTUALQUEST at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 1 March–31 December 2020 - Book now

We’re super thankful to HOME Manchester for their Homemakers series of online events. This week they’ve announced another fabulous theatre commission – ACTUALQUEST, an interactive fantasy musical set in and around your own home.

Who remembers the incredibly addictive TV gameshow Knightmare or loved the brilliantly tacky VHS boardgame Atmosfear? Recommended for ages 14+, ACTUALQUEST is a largely audio-based experience, inspired by the fantasy games of the 90s. So set your imagination free, allow your home to transform into a parallel universe and follow your powerful guides on this lively and gaudy adventure.

Let’s forget about lockdown for a bit… as you follow the wise oracles, Peter and David McWizard and witness your home transform into the huge and epic parallel universe of Pretendyland. Accomplish great deeds and take control of your own destiny.

To make the most of this experience, it is recommended that you play on a portable device and with earphones in. You can quest individually, or as a household fellowship – just share your access code and you can all quest together.

Set your imagination free. The quest is yours to decide.

We love that ACTUALQUEST is designed to be played multiple times too; each time you make a choice, a different story path is unlocked. The quest is yours to decide.
