ALT DELETE CONTINUES THE MYSTERY OF THE BLUE BLADE
Preview Weekends offers audiences a whole new kind of Delusion.
For the first time Delusion in partnership with The Great Company, Los Angeles’ premiere interactive theatre, continues the story from an original episode in an all-new adventure.
Each year Delusion has set the bar for interactive storytelling, which can be seen in this behind the scenes look at the original Blue Blade, pushing the envelope on stunts, special effects, and a living score that places audiences in the center of the action.
Last year audiences were introduced to the mysterious Safeguard Society and tasked with hunting down rogue scientist Evelyn Lowell through time! Evelyn had stolen the most powerful weapon in existence: the Blue Blade. With it, she was able to sever the threads of history and rewrite the stories of the highest bidders.
Yet all was not as it seemed with the Safeguard Society, who harbored dark secrets of their own.
Now the saga of the Blue Blade continues in Alt Delete, an all new twist on the traditional Delusion experience. Alt Delete finds our rogue agents, the audience, working for Evelyn on a mission impossible style adventure back to the 1980’s. As her Underwriters, guests will be sent to break into the Safeguard Society computer labs to erase all traces of Evelyn and themselves from existence.
Audiences play their part in a fast, high stakes game filled with puzzles and unique challenges, re-envisioning just what Jon Braver’s brand of Delusion storytelling can be. Guests will encounter signature stunts, special effects, and live score they’ve come to expect from Delusion, with a brand new perspective.
Can the Safeguard Society be deceived? Can Evelyn further her grasp on time and space? Will our rogue agents make it back in time? Get a sneak peak during two Preview Weekends as the first audiences take up the challenge of Alt Delete at The Dragon and Meeple, LA’s first tabletop gaming pub.
Alt Delete Preview Weekends will take place starting Wednesday, September 18th to Sunday, September 22nd then continues on Wednesday September 25th to Sunday, September 29th.
