Infected: An Immersive Horror Audio Drama
Spread by insects, the virus is deadly for most people, but a rare few are changed, turned into mindless dangerous monsters that roam the countryside. Put on headphones and be transported into a world where disease is spreading and zombies are real. The only cure is handed out sparingly and you’ve had enough---it’s time to escape.
Infected is an immersive horror audio drama adventure where the audience experiences a 360 soundscape while following live actors through the streets. This show is outdoors and involves walking over rough terrain and through darkness. Audiences for Infected will meet outside of Savoy Denver.
Rated PG-13 for horror themes, violence, and excessive use of foul language.
