The Archive of Missing Things is theatre unlike anything you have ever seen. At a table in a library with a wireless headset and an iPad, you get to be a sleuth in an online mystery. You choose your own path, and clues are everywhere – in the library all around you and in the live conversations you overhear in your headset. You have exactly 90 minutes to solve the puzzle. Can you do it? The Archive of Missing Things was created with Trillium-Award-winning writer Kate Cayley, award-winning sound designer Brian Riley, and computer programmer Ned Zimmerman. It is a theatrical scavenger hunt through the big ideas and little tragedies of the past.
