Dante's In Furlough


Devil is getting hitched, and given what’s going at the moment, there’s no better time to accept an invitation to the underworld.

It may not surprise you that London is the entrance to Hell – specifically the doorway to The Vaults – which is ready to roll again, in our new, socially-distant safe show. Inspired by Shel Silverstien’s epic poem ‘Billy Markham and the Devil’ – written for PlayBoy in 1977. Travel solo or with your quarantined dearest, but know that in this interactive show it’s betray or be betrayed.

Travel down into the many circles of Hell and navigate your way to the wedding of the millennium. Join your demonic guide and prove yourself worthy of a seat at Devil’s table; you’ll need to lie, sin and cheat your way there.

Don’t bring your Nan to this one, unless she likes a little flutter and a bigger tipple.

Whatever the circles of Hell have in store for you, be it lust or greed, or something altogether more sinister (which is quite likely), you’ll have to beat the Devil at his own game to reach the wedding on time – and avoid losing your soul along the way. Should you appear all too moral for their liking, your punishment will be to return to the altogether more disappointing plains of Earth and miss out on all the hedonism down below. But we think you’ll agree, being bad is just so much more fun.

The Vaults, and Hell itself, will comply by current recommended safety guidelines regarding Covid-19.

This production is for eight attendees at a time. Your group of 8 will travel together, with ample space to stand 2m away from other party members not within your bubble.

Your guide will ensure you have opportunity to keep sufficiently distant from other audience members and performers.

Face coverings are mandatory.

There will be no ‘foyer’ space to spend time before or after the show, however there will be opportunities to buy drinks during the show itself.

Your Booking Information will be retained for Track and Trace information, should you need to be contacted.
