The Archive of Missing Things

Buy Tickets

A contemplative game happening undercover in a library.

Equipped with an iPad and a headset, you have 90 minutes to explore a maze-like archive in search of the secret at its centre, guided by a live performance happening discreetly around you. Created by Zuppa with Trillium-Award-winning writer Kate Cayley, this performance, online book and game, travels through the debris of civilization in the age of rising sea levels.

“Imagine a high-tech theatrical hybrid of the works of Marcel Proust and the Myst series of computer adventure games, and you’re in the ballpark of where Zuppa Theatre Co. is playing…” – LocalXpress, Halifax

Presented in partnership with Toronto Public Libraries
