Listen to our review of The Man From Beyond by Strange Bird Immersive, a meticulously crafted blend of immersive theatre and escape rooms. The review is short, but trust us, any more and we’d verge on spoiling the incredible surprises this show has to offer. This experience flipped our entire view of the escape room industry upside-down, in the best way possible.

The review is followed by a conversation with the creators, Cameron Cooper and Haley ER Cooper! We discuss their approach to designing an immersive theatre escape experience, what escape rooms can learn from theatre, and their plans for the future.
