Filmore – an interactive mystery where the audience is the main character…
Modelled on escape rooms and murder mystery games and drawing inspiration from popular culture tinged with the hazy nostalgia of youth, Filmore combines visuals, art installation and music to create a unique multimedia, interactive and theatrical experience.
What the audience discover in the three rooms of Filmore’s house and from the films shown in the evidence room will dictate how the story will unfold and enable them to answer the three main questions:
Where can we find Filmore?
What happened to him?
What is he planning?
Part of our Young Curators programme curated by Emer Tyrrell & Daire O’Muire.

A word from our Young Curators:
When we first tried on our hats as Young Curators with the venue in 2019, neither of us could have written the three years that lay before us. After just a few months of planning and discussion, coronavirus took hold and theatre was halted, forcing us to re-imagine an art form we were only growing to understand. And yet, with Backstage’s constant support and (often generous) belief in us, we delivered the venue’s first virtual festival in June 2020, followed by a hybrid model the following year.
This brings us to 2022 and a recovering theatre scene that’s allowing us to deliver a live programme, much like the one we first envisioned back in 2019. This wasn’t a case of returning to square one but instead, returning to the drawing board. The conversations, stories and experiences that have given life to the past three topsy-turvy years have directly informed the art we want to present to the youth of Longford this season. As a generation periodically confined to bedroom walls, the online world has granted us greater access to politics, injustice and human experience than any previous generation – and we have taken to it easily, without looking back.
For this reason, our programme will not seek to explain, show or patronise but engage an active, change-making generation in lively, creative conversation. So, whether it’s a welcome distraction from school, big decisions or a lukewarm bag of cans, we welcome you to book a ticket, take your seat – and we’ll look after the rest
