Karen looking in mirror

A one-off immersive live experience by Blast Theory in partnership with National Theatre Wales.

Karen’s having a big bash for her 40th on 24 October, at a secret location near Cardiff and you’re invited. She’s booked the curry house, a DJ, a singer, the bar will be open and it’s going to be a right laugh. Will you come?

National Theatre Wales and Blast Theory would be delighted if you could join us for this one-off immersive live experience from Karen, the onscreen life coach app that’s a cross between gaming and storytelling.

Co-commissioned by The Space, Karen has been downloaded more than 13,000 times since launching in April. Now, Karen is planning a secret rendezvous with her biggest fans. Featuring a three course meal the event introduces some of Karen’s dearest friends as she decides about the next big step in her life.

Tickets for this event are only available to those who have completed the nine-day Karen app experience, which is available FREE on the Apple App store and on Google Play Store.
