The award-winning VR experience 'THE SEVERANCE THEORY: WELCOME TO RESPITE'
is coming to Los Angeles - attend either a live immersive installation, or virtually from your own home.

LOS ANGELES - March 30, 2022 - PRLog -- The award-winning VR immersive theater experience, The Severance Theory: Welcome to Respite is coming to Los Angeles in April. Opening to the public for the first time ever, creators have curated a unique experience for audiences with this IRL/VR hybrid event.

Participants will visit an undisclosed Los Angeles location to participate in this thrilling VR experience- headsets provided! In addition, audiences have the option to attend these same shows using their own personal VR headsets from the comfort of their own homes.

An hour-long immersive journey with two live actors performing in virtual reality, Welcome to Respite is a powerful and intimate immersive theater experience that has struck the heart of audiences around the world. Through the magic of VR technology, participants feel fully immersed in our 3D world.


Upon visiting your family's home after your mom's passing, you are whisked into a forgotten childhood memory. Each interaction is as meaningful as it is fascinating when you rediscover your past and delight in the simplicities of being a child once again. However, something is not quite right—perhaps it's the masked tension between your parents, maybe you are hearing voices that seem to be only in your mind, it could even be that there is a monster hiding in your closet. After all, respite is only temporary when you are at the whim of your own mind.


Los Angeles immersive theater attendees may remember this show from its 2019 IRL run. It has since been adapted to VR and is produced as a joint production between CoAct Productions and Ferryman Collective.

"This show was inspired by the true stories of people who suffer from DID," explains Lyndsie Scoggin. "The experience takes you on a roller coaster of emotions as you explore both yourself and your relationships with others."

Ultimately, the goal of this experience is to push the boundaries of immersive storytelling through its use of interactivity, live performance, intimacy, and thoughtful design.

Two of the producers from Ferryman Collective approached Lyndsie about adapting this production to VR, "I really loved the idea of exploring the intimate and simple moments of connection that I felt could be achieved in VR," said Deirdre V. Lyons.

"There is a sense of awe about the scope and scale of things that can be achieved in VR," adds Stephen Butchko


The Severance Theory: Welcome to Respite is co-produced by Ferryman Collective and CoAct Productions and is directed by Lyndsie Scoggin.
