Our brand new Jury Duty live experience is ready to come to any venue within London! As the fate of the defendant lies in your hands, are you really ready to work the case? Evidence will be laid out for examination by our team of actors for you to review before you get the chance to question the Defendant via video call. The show is best played with 12 people, but this number is flexible depending upon requirements (we can hold up to 20!). Through communication, problem solving, delegation and diplomacy, Jury Duty demands a wide range of collaboration skills from its participants through an engaging and plot-twisting storyline.
Audience members of Jury Games Live are treated as if they are their real selves, taking part in a new form of jury service involving partnership with businesses. They are guided through proceedings via a Coordinator, present in-person in the room. After some introductory videos, players take the jurors’ oath and begin looking through physical evidence: clothes, burnt wallets, ID cards, mysterious objects and more. There are also statements, a 3D floorplan of a building that was the subject of an arson attack, and other documents to review. The ‘jurors’ are also told that they will be able to interview Harry Briggs, the Defendant through the trial. Harry is played by a live actor, and is connected to the room remotely via Zoom. The actor playing Harry has information not contained in the written evidence, and will respond to any approach the jurors use in questioning him, and can be befriended, tricked, flattered, or even
threatened. It’s entirely up to you!
Other communications also reach the audience from outside the room: mysterious text messages, video clips showing the victim’s grieving widow speaking to the media, and even a computerised voice recording directing some jurors to think outside the box regarding the victim’s identity. It becomes clear that some kind of conspiracy may be afoot. If the jurors work together and share the information they have found, question Harry effectively, and use resources like the email thread with a mysterious stranger and the Metropolitan Police Evidence Database, they can find the truth of what happened not only about the night of the fire, but also why remote trials, like this one, came about…
