IMMERSIVE THEATRE, TIME-PRESSURED PUZZLE SOLVING AND IMPOSSIBLE DECISIONS COMBINE TO CREATE DEATHCELL: MAGENTA

A BRAND NEW, THEATRICALLY CINEMATIC, IMMERSIVE HORROR ESCAPE EXPERIENCE IS LAUNCHING LATER THIS SUMMER AT A TOP SECRET LOCATION IN HACKNEY WICK, LONDON

OVERVIEW

DEATHCELL: MAGENTA is a brand-new, original and terrifyingly intense immersive horror escape experience. Prepare to uncover an origin story where you’ll meet Magenta, a twisted-tinkerer of trials where survival is the only option.

 

You’re challenged to take on a 60-minute, live-action experience that’s not for the faint-hearted. It’s time to uncover the truth as you hit rewind and play through the past, witnessing cinematic theatre and solving seemingly impossible puzzles to make your escape – have you got what it takes to survive?

R Space Productions, a fresh and innovative immersive production company, are excited to announce DEATHCELL: MAGENTA. This brand-new, theatrically cinematic, immersive horror escape experience is coming to Hackney Wick in London this summer for a limited run between 23rd-31st August.

 

After an award-winning run back in 2018, R Space Productions are thrilled to bring a completely new incarnation of DEATHCELL that breaks immersive boundaries and will leave you feeling unnerved, euphoric and a little breathless. If you love immersive theatre, escape rooms and the pure spine-chilling thrill of being chased out the exit, this experience is for you.

 

By this point, you’re probably asking, what is DEATHCELL?

 

Built on chaos and corruption, DEATHCELL is a formidable institution of abused government power. It’s a heart-pounding prison of puzzles, punishment and paranoia. A problematic penitentiary where decisions determine fate. In this modern dystopia, inmates are treated as players in a political prison, fighting for survival and subject to pained puzzles where choice is a weapon of fate. You must select to survive.

 

But it’s time to hit rewind…

 

DEATHCELL: MAGENTA is an adrenaline-fuelled origin story, taking you on an immersive journey as you see where it all began, and witness the unsettling rise of DEATHCELL. Get ready to play through the past and piece together the future.

 

This 60-minute, live-action scare-fest is a wild and thrilling experience, combining theatrical cinema, time-pressured puzzle solving and impossible decisions. Prepare to unlock the truth behind the torture as you meet Magenta, a twisted-tinkerer of trials where survival is the only option.

 

Betrayal, deception and unprecedented choices lie ahead… are you ready to push play?

 

Don’t miss out on this epic masterpiece running for a limited time between Friday 23rd to Saturday 31st August. Early bird tickets for DEATHCELL: MAGENTA are on sale now and start from just £32pp, with time slots between 11am to 9pm. Book your tickets now at www.deathcell.co.uk.
