Chambers under Bristol Temple Meads station which have been uninhabited for 70 years are set to be transformed by a Bristol-based theatre collective.

Raucous will be performing The Stick House, described by a spokesman as ‘a dark fable of love set in a lush, immersive world’.

They added: “Raucous is a collaboration of more than 15 theatre-makers, film-makers, scientists, creative technologists and composers who forge new ways of thinking about how theatre is made, driven by a desire to heighten the experience for an audience so that it is more immersive, immediate and emotive.”

In 2014 a team of 26 technologists from Google Creative Lab travelled to Bristol to work with Raucous on researching how technology and theatre can be combined.

Steve Vranakis, a lab representative, said: “Raucous not only brings together the best creative technological minds in Bristol, but has attracted a stellar team of some of the hottest and most imaginative theatre-makers around.”

The play will be shown from September 11 to October 17, with tickets priced at £18.50.

Audience members must be aged 14 or over.
