A quirky playable theatre show is coming to Weymouth.

The Midnight Mission is a show that sees the audience work actively with the characters to solve a mystery, with different choices unlocking different scenes.

There will be two showings of the family-friendly show in the town at Weymouth College’s Bay Theatre at 7pm on Thursday, February 8, and at Weymouth Library at 2pm on Thursday, February 15.

The minds behind the show are award-winning Bristol based theatre company Brave Bold Drama, who were inspired to create this art-heist family theatre show by real-life events of the Lost Summer of 1816, when Lord Byron hosted an impromptu writers' retreat in Villa Diodati on the banks of Lake Geneva.

Set in the present day, audiences join creative agents Kahlo and Dali from the Company of International Artists to investigate the case of an apparently haunted artwork which hangs on the wall of Villa Diodati.

There will be an additional Dorset showing at Swanage Library on Wednesday, February 14 at 2pm.

Tickets to the Weymouth College showing cost £8 for adults and £7 for concessions, and are available here: www.ticketsource.co.uk/thebaytheatre or by calling the box office 01305 208702.

The Bay Theatre is based in the Kimmeridge building at Weymouth College’s Cranford Avenue campus.

Free parking is available in the main College car park and arrangements can be made for accessible parking.
