Fusing a groundbreaking virtual reality experience with a thrilling murder mystery, FROGMAN by critically-acclaimed UK company curious directive takes you to the cutting edge of live storytelling today.

Enter the world of FROGMAN – a supernatural thriller where the skeletons of childhood reappear in the present.

It’s 2019, and Meera, a coral reef scientist, is informed by detectives that her father is being charged for the murder of her childhood friend, Ashleigh Richardson, who disappeared in 1995. Springing back and forth between two timelines, the mystery unfolds through childhood sleepovers with young Meera and her friends, to an underwater search-and-rescue mission. It’s a race against time to find the missing girl.

At the crossroads of contemporary performance and cutting-edge tech, FROGMAN is a coming-of-age drama exploring the fragility of the childhood imagination. curious directive’s pioneering integration of live theatre and virtual reality will open your mind to the possibilities for storytelling in the digital age.
