Monroe & Associates

About

You’ve woken up in Sunset City Hospital. You have no memory of who you are or how you got there. All you have is a black hat, a key to a caravan, and a name: Frankie Monroe – Private Detective.

Over the next hour you must unscramble the past by solving puzzles, making phone calls and investigating an office full of secrets. But with every step you take you sink deeper into your own dastardly fiction.

Created by The Last Great Hunt’s Tim Watts (The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer, It’s Dark Outside, BRUCE) this is an inventive and immersive theatrical experience unlike any other. Solve puzzles, discover secrets and get lost in the fiction you create.

It's the movie you always wanted to be in. ★★★★

The West Australian

A tightly executed, intensely personal piece of interactive theatre. ★★★★★

ArtsHub

To give much more away would be to spoil the fun, but ‘Monroe & Associates’ is a genuinely original concept that’s wonderfully executed. ★★★★★

Scenestr

Here is a truly immersive piece of theatre where you, the only audience, are also an actor."
