‘Don’t Go Outside.’
In the Autumn of 2016, Newcastle’s Castle Keep played host to ‘WYTCH’, a play written by award winning writer Lee Mattinson, and produced by Twenty Seven Productions, revealing the truth behind one of Newcastle’s darkest times in history – the witch trials of 1650. After a sell-out run of performances, Twenty Seven are excited to be heading back to The Castle for a second time, this Autumn, to take you on a different journey to the usual factual, historical inspired productions that they are known for.
‘Don’t Go Outside’ is set in Newcastle’s ancient fortress, in an apocalyptic, modern day world, where the audience witness the struggle of three “survivors” from the outside. Inspired by thrillers such as “10 Cloverfield Lane” and the hit game “The Last of Us”, “Don’t Go Outside” is a site specific, terrifyingly immersive play, exploring human nature, and what we will do to stay alive when the end of the world is very near.
As this production was programmed right across the Halloween season, audiences experienced a truly heart racing event, starting right at the beginning, by barricading the audience in the Main Hall for the duration. It is fair to say it was not for the faint hearted!
‘Don’t Go Outside’ opened on the 23rd October, until 5th November, with shows every night at 7:30pm, lasting approximately 80 minutes. There is no show on the 28th October.
“As far as ‘reasons to go and see this play’ go, though, you really don’t need to look much further than the fact that it’s performed in the Great Hall of Newcastle’s 13th century castle keep. It’s just straight-up stunning as a place to hold an event of pretty much any kind, and Don’t Go Outside utilises the space – somehow cavernous, claustrophobic, expansive, and labyrinthine all at once – to full immersive advantage. As an event, this is properly atmospheric, sensually stimulating theatre. Probably not a great bed-time story, though...”
