NIGHTWATCHERS returns to the Tower of London.

NIGHTWATCHERS is an immersive night-time experience at the Tower of London directed by award-winning digital theatre company ANAGRAM. Step into a shadowy world of state surveillance, where messages and phone calls lead you around one of our most notorious prisons; this is your induction into the art of covert investigation.

The story moves between contemporary London and the most dramatic years of the Elizabethan secret service. Faith, violence and the invisible lines between truth and justice collide, and you must find your way guided by the stories of code-breakers, law enforcers and radical religious extremists.

In a climate of global insecurity, NIGHTWATCHERS asks where is the line between security and oppression? Who watches the watchers?
