London's Theatre Royal Stratford East proudly presents Petrichor: a new, socially distanced, immersive VR theatre experience from the critically acclaimed production company ThickSkin. With online access tickets, you'll be able to enter this breathtaking, 360-degree, virtual environment from the comfort of your own home!

Petrichor VR Experience: A virtual world right at your fingertips

Step into a virtual environment, one where every passing day is exactly the same as the last. Petrichor is like entering a dystopian parallel universe, where every waking moment is monochromatic, muted, and controlled. Nothing bad ever happens. But nothing good ever does either. Happiness and excitement have been traded in for a world without suffering and pain.

When two unlikely individuals meet by chance, they get a taste of what life could be like if it were less controlled. Now connected by a curiosity of what could be, the pair slowly start to question every decision they make, every step they take, and every thought they think. Is the grass greener on the other side?

How does the online Petrichor viewing experience work? 

Please Note: Tickets for Petrichor are for the online viewing experience only and NOT for the socially distanced run in person. A week before the show's run, you will receive an email with a link for online access. The show will be available for you to view from 9am on 7 December until midnight on 13 December, after which the link will expire.

You must have access to your own headphones to fully be able to enjoy this 360-degree experience. VR headsets are also compatible with this experience but NOT at all required, so there is no need to purchase a VR headset whatsoever.
