Tessa Bide Productions is visiting Buckinghamshire Libraries this half term (26 October – 1 November) with a digital tour of audio-interactive experience; ‘The Anarchist’s Mobile Library – An Audio Adventure.’
Following previous success with productions such as ‘The Selfish Giant’ and ‘Perfect’ (rated ★★★★ The Guardian), Tessa Bide Productions returns with an audio-interactive experience about literature and adventure, on whatever internet device you have!
‘The Anarchist’s Mobile Library’ will take you on an incredible audio adventure that YOU choose, solving problems and meeting characters, from wherever you choose to play! With many different worlds to explore, where will you choose to journey to? Perhaps an intergalactic space adventure? Or a deep-sea swim, meeting creatures that lurk in the depths? Or even an abandoned witch’s kitchen, with the cauldron bubbling away?
Having previously created wondrous theatrical experiences for children, in this time of lockdown, Tessa Bide Productions have partnered with expert technologists to create an interactive, audio adventure to empower children to be masters of their own destinies, to be inspired by literature and to change the stories they see unfolding around them.
The fantastically narrated audio piece offers the audience a chance to dive in and choose what adventure they might seek and what ending they would like to see, choosing story options as they go. Bold and colourful animations will accompany the narration if needed, but otherwise children will be able to put down their screens and let their imaginations paint the visuals. While theatres are shut, the audio adventure takes children on an immersive theatrical journey of their own making.
Register for free and the link will go live on at 9am on Monday 26 October until Sunday 1 November inclusive.
Each adventure takes roughly 8 minutes to play, and you can keep dipping back in again and again to try different adventures and different endings! Play 3 in a row and you’ll become a fully qualified Anarchist Librarian and be rewarded with a special surprise…!
Details of how to access the event are provided in the confirmation email and e-ticket.

“This is a fantastic initiative, which I’m sure will provide hours of educational fun for children across the county over the half term holidays. And for the budding adventurers themselves, I just have one thing to say… enjoy!”
