Why be an audience when you can be a participant? Part interactive game, part social discussion, part theatrical performance, come enjoy theatre like you’ve never experienced it before!

Through the lens of social media, Conspiracy Now: Is Democracy Dead? examines global movements like the Farmer Protests in India to see how and why social media manipulates and separates us.

Through real-world examples, games and discussions, each participant will have the opportunity to dissect the issues, connect with others, and participate in more nuanced conversations about important issues. Thought-provoking and fun, this game-play style of theatre is sure to be a performance you remember for a very long time.

Conspiracy Now is an interactive documentary-style theatre performance, based on the form developed in Conspiracy’s international hit show Foreign Radical. The performance gets audience members to play games similar to those in Foreign Radical, to investigate critical issues in current events and questions the manipulation tactics of social media.
