The Droves is an immersive theatre show, designed by kids, for adults.

You’re invited into a secret community of children living deep beneath a derelict carpet factory. For decades they’ve hidden from adults, growing strange in the darkness – but now they’re asking you in… Unsettling dilemmas, mushroom forests and at least one gorilla await you at the door.

Part immersive experience, part escape game, BAFTA award winning company Coney present the imaginations of 6-11 year olds as they take over their own site in London Bridge for this unique theatrical event.

“If you want to see the future of British theatre now, Coney is one of the companies to watch”

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

The Droves will be at COLAB Factory from the Sat 17 – Sun 25 February 2018 from 6:30pm (Matinees from 1:30pm)
