About the show

In this immersive theater experience, you play the role of the survivor of an illegal medical experiment who must solve the mystery of your loved one's death, and confront your own attitudes about mortality and loss. More…

In 2014, five people died in an illegal medical experiment in a Canal Street basement. Before their families could learn what happened, the incident was covered up: buried under a mountain of legal procedures and sealed behind a web of police tape. No one knew how those five people came to participate in the experiment, or what they were doing; only that it cost them their lives. Some of their survivors moved on. Some fell apart. A handful kept fighting, and after five years, they’ve finally won the opportunity to unseal the laboratory, and learn what took their loved ones from them. 

Note: "
The Mortality Machine" contains depictions of medical procedures, death and grieving, partial nudity, mild sexuality, and profanity. It is not suitable for children under the age of 18.
