Poltimore House - Poltimore House, Exeter EX4 0AU

30th May - 1st June 2018 at 8:30pm

Running time: 2 hours

Age: 18+

1920s inspired immersive theatre set inside a crumbling Exeter country house

Emerging theatre company Get Out Of My Space, in collaboration with University of Exeter student-run theatre company Theatre with Teeth, will be taking over Exeter's historic Poltimore House with new production Umbra, an immersive theatrical experience inspired by Woyzeck, Christian Shaw and the Peaky Blinders opening this May.

Stepping inside the crumbling hallways of Poltimore House, audiences will be taken back to 1919 and immersed in a dark world of drinking, religion and organised crime as twisted demonic forces gradually worm their way into the minds of its inhabitants.

Featuring an ensemble cast of vividly realised characters, Umbra offers audiences true freedom over whose path they choose to follow through the corridors of the house; Jesse invites you in for the party of a lifetime, while Dante's mind crumbles under the traumas of the First World War, and Christian Shaw is tempted by an offer from a mysterious stranger. As infidelities start to spread and supernatural influences take control, a wild night of debauchery morphs into something entirely darker.

All performances will begin at 8:30pm with the house and bar opening from 7:30pm.


Please note that this event is suitable for age 18+ only.


Tickets will cost £10 and will be available soon via Get Out of My Space. To stay up to date follow our Facebook page at
