As the press gather for a big announcement on the new environmental bill, a politician’s future hangs in the balance.

Thrust into the heart of a spy thriller, you’ll navigate the political scandal of the decade. Watching over a multi-storey car park, you must use every mode of surveillance to hunt down facts and intercept evidence. As agents of the state you will expose a complex network of corruption that threatens to destroy the UK’s path to environmental progress.

A Moment of Madness fuses compelling drama with real-time gameplay to create a visceral new live experience.

In a brand new format for 2021, audiences will take part online in teams of 2-4, taking active roles as MI5 agents from the comfort of their own homes.

‘It is immersive theatre at its best, where the audience actively lead the plot, to the point where it is entirely up to them how them how the production ends’ behindthearras.com on A Moment of Madness 2019

‘The Other Way Works is a dynamic young company that is successfully exploring the possibilities of what theatre can and might be.’ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

A Norfolk & Norwich Festival commission. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Supported by Unity Theatre Trust & Birmingham Open Media. Originally co-produced with Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Flatpack Festival.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
