Dear Esther Live

UK Tour 2017-18

Innovative live staging of The Chinese Room’s celebrated video game goes on the road after rave reviews for London performances.

A deserted Hebridean landscape, memories of a fatal crash, a book written by a dying protagonist – explore a haunting, deserted, island shrouded in mystery in a live audio-visual performance of the videogame Dear Esther, as it tours the UK this Autumn. The first date for the Dear Esther Live tour will be at Sonica, Glasgow, on 3 November, where a press preview will take place.

The play-through of the game takes place on-screen, accompanied by live narration and a live performance of BAFTA-winning composer Jessica Curry’s powerful score, the story is brought to life as an innovative performative work of visual art, classical music and theatrical storytelling.
