Finding yourself with a little time on your hands? Missing the uplift of live arts and culture? Is there a friend, a relative or a kid in your life who could use a daily dose of adventure? The meticulous mavericks at The Ministry of Mundane Mysteries have got you covered.

As part of SummerWorks’ expanded summer programming, we are presenting a month of entirely free experiences from Outside the March’s The Ministry of Mundane Mysteries. For the first time ever, the experience will now be available outside of North America and accessible to d/Deaf audiences.

Book a personalized, weeklong subscription to this auditory adventure for yourself or a loved one. Or better yet, book a two-household experience and remotely connect with your friends and family as you experience the mystery unfold at the same time. The experience takes the form of six phone calls (or video calls in ASL) that take place once a day at the same time each day, Monday-Saturday.

This customized improvised narrative experience unfolds over a week’s worth of short daily phone calls, as our intrepid private investigators delve into your very own micro mystery using the investigative power of good conversation.

The Ministry’s Departments include:

  • The Misplaced Keepsakes Division
  • The Striking Coincidences Think Tank
  • The Missed Connections Unit
  • The Paranormal Activity Task Force

At this moment of uncertainty, leave some of the pondering to the professionals as we work with you to untangle meaning from meaninglessness in the mundane.
