The Lucky Ones

The Lucky Ones is a digital, 7-day experience which comes to you via your phone, your laptop and through your letterbox.

The Lucky Ones is like having your very own Truman show, where you are the star of the unfolding narrative, where your choices directly impact the story and where you are the main character. 


Play as a team (up to 4) or go it alone in this interactive, immersive experience. Your choices will directly impact where the story goes.

Forget zoom theatre, forget watching pre-recorded experiences.
The Lucky Ones is unlike anything you have seen before.
Part theatre - Part video game - part escape room.


"The Lucky Ones is genuinely suprising . . . I sent someone to their death for a wheat stick covered in marmite." - Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor

Blurs the line between fact and fiction…Telling a story of data sabotage through our own tech devices is a neat idea.” — Mark Fisher, Guardian

What are the running times?

DATE: The experience is a week long. The first contact will be made on Day One. From there you will get parts of the narrative fed to you across the next week.

TIME: You can work out a time which suits you best. There are no strict time commitments. It is designed to work alongside whatever you have on.


Should I play in a team or individually?

The experience is set up for both. It depends on what type of experience you want.

Although we recommend going it alone if you are brave enough! There are different journeys to be had (based on your decisions), so you could always buy individual tickets and discuss your different strategies as a group. 


Can I play with people in a team if I don’t live with them?

Yes, you will need to be able to communicate with each other. We have found zoom if a good vehicle for this with its ‘share screen’ function.


How much time do I have to commit to this?

There is no set way to play this, or deadline to play certain bits by. You could play a bit every day (this is the recommended way) and this would take anywhere from 10-30 minutes depending on the day, although our advice is that it is best played over the course of the week as new things get revealed live.


What happens if I miss a day?

Nothing really, you can catch up on what you missed the day before and play through two days in one!


Will I have to meet anyone in person?

No, this experience is with lockdown in mind. It is 100% distanced and comes to you via your laptop, phone and through your letterbox.


I have done previous versions of The Lucky Ones, is this one different?

Yes, this a brand new version of The Lucky Ones. It will feel familiar if you have done previous versions (there may even be some Easter Eggs for you to find), but it is fundamentally a new experience. This version of The Lucky Ones has been specifically adapted for Cast and South Yorkshire audiences.


I live outside the UK, can I do The Lucky Ones?

At this point in time, we can only accommodate audiences with UK postal addresses.

A way to experience this in the time being is to be in a team with someone who can receive the post and work together remotely.


What kind of information will you ask me for?

We will ask you for your name, UK phone number, email and postal address. We will need these to send you different elements of the show.


How will my data be stored?

Cast will store your data in line with our Privacy Policy, which you can read here. Cast will share your name, phone number, email and postal address with Riptide in order for you to participate in The Lucky Ones. Riptide will store your data safely for the duration of the experience and after the last day, your data will be deleted. By purchasing a ticket for this event, you agree to these terms.
