Aeon: Patient X

There’s an outbreak – a deadly contagion grips Arcadia Life Sciences, and members of the public are urgently needed to help scientists identify the carrier of the virus behind the pandemic. Welcome to Aeon: Patient X, an immersive theatre experience from the team behind Aeon: Live at MSF16. This event stars Paul Warriner (World’s End, Inspector George Gently) and Angela Costello (Churchill), blending real science, augmented reality and a smartphone app to show you all about the science of contagion. You’ll be guided through the event to uncover viral traces, working your way towards the source of the contagion: Patient X.
