A Midnight Visit

Theatre / Interactive
Scaled event image 01
While you are waiting on the Headmistress, perhaps you would like to step this way? The Girls School’s most troubled young ghost, Lizzie Reid, invites you on a journey to the edge of madness. Be seduced by your imagination and explore a dreamworld of shadows, guilt, foreboding and impermanence – conjured from the grave through Lizzie’s obsession with the grandfather of gothic horror, Edgar Allan Poe.

Part choose-your-own-adventure, part film-set, part playground; A Midnight Visit will takeover Girls School direct from its sensational debut in Sydney. A performance experience like no other, audiences will encounter strange characters, thrilling scenes and macabre splendour as they sojourn through the institution’s corridors and rooms.

Flirting with the surreal and the absurd, while oozing steampunk, Stranger Things and David Lynch vibes, this is your chance to enjoy a hedonistic night out of a very different, dark and decadent variety.

Is nightmare or fantasy? Remembering or premonition? Like life, no journey is the same…

Originally produced in Sydney in 2018 by Broad Encounters Productions and Groundswell Productions

“A Midnight Visit is unpredictable, illusive, intrinsically designed for deception…The angel is in the detail here and the devil is loose in the imagination.”
– Sydney Arts Guide
“Australia’s answer to Sleep No More.”
– ABC Arts
“This is what theatre should be doing all the time, challenging, exploring, developing and expanding the form of theatre.”
