About  the Show

In January 2018, Old Lamp Entertainment invited our audience to step into the underground world of The Vaults: Waterloo and immerse themselves in the sights, sounds and smells of 19th Century London. There they uncovered an object of immense power amongst the dusty relics of Cave's curio shop. Adapted for stage by Mike Archer; directed by Elif Knight and produced by Luisa Guerreiro and Rebekah Harvey for Old Lamp Entertainment Limited.

 

Inspired by the classic short story from H. G. Wells, the visionary author of 'The War of the Worlds'. What would you do if you knew you were being watched? Watched by someone you were not even aware was there?
