bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company and the Kings Cross Hotel will present the exciting immersive theatre production, Visiting Hours, updated and extended for 2018 following a sold-out season at Vivid Sydney in 2016. 

Visiting Hours is a mind-bending experience that sees the five-story Kings Cross Hotel reimagined as an off-the-grid medical facility run by a mysterious figure known only as The Doctor. Audience members are plunged into The Doctor’s bizarre and disturbing medical world, while participating in his unconventional therapies and experiments.

The character of The Doctor is inspired by a larger-than-life, gun-toting physician who treated Kings Cross residents in the 1930s. Co-writer and Director for Visiting Hours, and bAKEHOUSE Co-Artistic Director, John Harrison said, “We wanted Visiting Hours to connect with the history of the Cross. Some truly fascinating people lived here in the late 19th and early 20th century and one of those was the creative spark for the show.”

Visiting Hours features a team of over 20 actors, singers and musicians in a work that blends music, performance, lighting and sound with a design that exploits the unique architecture of the Kings Cross Hotel.

Visiting Hours is the first in a trilogy of large-scale immersive theatre experiences that bAKEHOUSE have programmed for 2018 including KX Ultra (part of Vivid Sydney) from 28th May to 10th June and Armistice from 1st to 11th November.

Writers John Harrison, Constantine Costi and Michael Costi Directors John Harrison and Michael Dean Sound Design Tegan Nicholls Lighting Design Benjamin Brockman Set and Costume Design Anna Gardiner Stage Manager & Production Assistant Andrew McMartin.
