"The Mountebank" is Long Cloud Youth Theatre's original devised work; an interactive and immersive piece of promenade theatre bringing together characters and audience like never before.

You are invited to a party. A party in the conference room of The Mountebank Hotel. There are several other guests attending, each unaware of the identity of the host who has brought them together. The party is explicitly formal dress. A formal dress party, but make sure you wear comfortable shoes: you may get taken for a ride.

In Long Cloud’s unique production the stage bleeds into an entire building. Travel through an expansive, unfolding venue of endless hallways and secret doors to meet characters of the hotel and help solve the unravelling mystery of why you were brought here— and by whom.

A mountebank was a term originally used to describe a person who deceives others, who tricks and cheats other people. Like the magical trick of misdirection, a mountebank intends to distract the audience from the truth of the mystery. Each character offers you clues and information to solve the mystery of the absent host, but who can be trusted, who is speaking the truth, and who might be the mountebank?

Take a look at www.themountebank.co.nz to gain extra knowledge and clues before the hunt even begins…
