Book via eventbrite.

‘Double Life’ is a brand new fusion of live musical theatre and VR as part of The Greater Manchester Fringe Festival.

Musical Synopsis:
Guy is gay. Guy is a gamer. And Guy is looking for love – in virtual reality. ‘Double Life’ is a brand new fusion of live musical theatre and VR. One moment heartwarming, the next heartbreaking, Guy will introduce you to virtual reality, immersing you in his story, surrounding you with his own virtual world and teaching you his favourite new VR games. 2017 Manchester Theatre Award winners leo&hyde return to Manchester Fringe with this innovative new musical. Suitable for people with *and* without prior VR experience. Note on COVID-19: Each audience member will have their own headset in a 2m space, thoroughly cleaned in between performances.

DOUBLE LIFE follows a gay graphic designer looking for love in virtual reality. During the show, audiences have a chance to experience some of the most exciting, creative aspects of VR. They spend half the time watching the live musical and half in VR experiences where they get to watch, play and paint with the programme Tilt Brush. Appealing to people both with and without experiences of virtual reality, it’s an incredible way to give audiences an unforgettable hands-on introductory experience, as well as draw people in who are interested in tech and illustration.
