Stop the silence. Join the resistance.
Music has been banned in the town of Wrexham and silence ensues. The town is now a very different place, regimented and controlled, whilst the black market thrives with secret traders dealing in bootleg musical experiences. Anyone seen cavorting, making melodic merry, or moving rhythmically are immediately detained. Being caught in possession of musical artefacts of any kind comes with a very high price. But there is hope....rumours are spreading behind closed doors of a resistance. A resistance against the silence. The time has come to make a stand. Are you ready?
Silent State is a roaming theatre game and is a mixture of puzzles, music, intrigue and theatrical happenings. The event plays out on the streets of Wrexham town centre and requires participants to move between several locations on foot. Participants will be placed in groups of six - you can come as a ready made group or we can match you up with other players on the day.

Welsh National Opera in collaboration with yello brick
Welsh National Opera
Welsh National Opera transforms lives through the power of opera. We are passionate about opera and want to share this passion with as many people as possible. Welsh National Opera loves to inspire communities with opera and is currently in the third and final year of its Wrexham Street Songs programme which has been delivered across Wrexham County. Since 2011 Welsh National Opera has been working with communities, sparking their imagination to think about opera differently. As a result of these collaborative projects the community has inspired the creation of a soap opera, a collection of lullabies, an unusual ward round, three choirs and much more.
yello brick is a creative agency that builds engaging and participatory experiences. We do this through storytelling and by creating happenstance. We develop stories that create new realities in our everyday spaces, that ignite the imagination and stimulate conversations and connections. These unique immersive experiences are created by utilising digital, theatrical and art based forms.
