Deathcell: Magenta - immersive horror experience set to open this August

The official event description explains more about the show...

Built on chaos and corruption, DEATHCELL is a formidable institution of abused government power. It’s a heart-pounding prison of puzzles, punishment and paranoia. A problematic penitentiary where decisions determine fate. In this modern dystopia, inmates are treated as players in a political prison, fighting for survival and subject to pained puzzles where choice is a weapon of fate. You must select to survive.

The production is the follow-up to 2018's Deathcell, which won Best Out of Season Attraction at the 2019 ScareCON Awards.

Steph Ricketts, Founder & Managing Director of R Space Productions, commented:

I can't wait for the world to discover what awaits from R Space Productions. Our upcoming show, DEATHCELL: MAGENTA, is set to leave a lasting impression, marking our most daring venture to date. By blending elements of cinema, immersive theatre, escape room puzzles, and the thrill of horror, we're pushing boundaries and crafting new forms of escapism with compelling storytelling. Our journey began six years ago with nothing but dedication and passion. Witnessing the team at R Space Productions dive wholeheartedly into this project fills me with immense pride, leaving myself and many excited for the future that lies ahead.

Deathcell: Magenta will run from 23rd to 31st August at a secret location in Hackney Wick. Tickets are on sale now, starting from £32.00. For more info and to book, visit
