But, it’s not just the courtyard that is taken up with fantastical drama, as it turns out. Immersive theatre company Dreamthinkspeak’s latest production, In The Beginning Was The End, has infiltrated the hidden rooms and corridors underneath the building. The plot line is a closely guarded secret but reports are that Leonardo da Vinci and the Book of Revelations are both important inspirations.
New worlds being explored above and below one of our favourite buildings? Now that's what we call an immersive experience.
