Roaring is a new immersive theatre experience that plunges its audience into 1920s Geelong.

This development will be led by Geelong producer-and-actress, Libby Brockman, in collaboration with award-winning writer Fleur Murphy, seasoned director Rachel Baring, and local Geelong actors. Artistically inspired by grand-scale immersive works such as The Malthouse’s ‘Because The Night’ and London’s ‘A Drowned Man’, and bolstered by the team’s 10yrs+ experience in immersive and intimate theatre productions, this is an exciting work made by and for the Geelong community.

The initial stage of research will see the team explore Geelong’s infamous stories, and, with a dash of creative licence, draw upon this city’s forgotten history to generate an array of charming suspects and a world of grit and excitement.
