What’s in the Wardrobe
Zebedee were asked to create an immersive experience within the popular East London event – Night Tales. Taking inspiration from C.S Lewis’s “The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe” Zebedee decided to create their own take on Narnia, by building a secret room like no other, hidden behind a modest wardrobe door. With no signage or indication to what was behind the wardrobe door, it left guest ferociously frustrated, thus allowing us to invite those brave enough to enter the mystery… And those who took a chance on the Wardrobe were not disappointed… Each night Zebedee created a fully immersive and interactive experience. From giggling Geisha’s, to bondage Nuns holding confession, It was a different party each time. Some nights you found yourself having a cup of tea with the Nan’s others you were involved in a full body work out class with to Vegas fitness gurus Patty and Bridget! There were nights when Tranny’s Ted and George were to be found posing in the wardrobe and others when Unicorns were in there having a psychedelic tea party. Then December saw the wardrobe hit with snow, which brought out a whole new range of christmas characters! As if this fabulous entertainment wasn’t enough, each time you entered our magical little world you were rewarded with a photograph to remember the good times you had in there… And there were many good times!
Christmas 2014 also saw “The Cock-tivity” come to life- a site-specific and very alternative telling of “The Nativity”. Commissioned by London leading fashion PR company IPR for their Christmas party, Zebedee took over an East End London pub to deliver a side splitting comical entertainment, whilst guests dined on traditional Christmas dinner.
The Class of 1989
For The Prom, guests were invited to dress as if they were part an American school class graduating in 1989. The venue was set up like a classic high school prom complete with a disco ball, a balloon arch and a giant American flag. And so the scene was set for the drama and the contestants nominated for prom king and queen were introduced by Head of the prom comittee, Patty Lopez. Each character took to the stage accompanied by a song and gave a small speech to win the heart of the audience, then everyone was left to enjoy the party... But the heat of the competition resulted in various forms of sabotage which meant that when they next took the stage, the contestants weren't looking so pretty! In the name of true participation it was up to the audience to decide who won so in the end who got crowned was a real surprise for all of us! The success of the prom was due to audience integration- everyone who came contributed to the cooky 80s atmosphere by going all out on their costumes. It was a lot of fun.
The Twisted Toys Tea Party
Last Halloween Zebedee Productions invited guests up to the attic for a tea party with a twist! Bands of toy soldiers led people up to the stunning top floor warehouse space at Dalston Heights where they were seated and treated to three courses of delicious food and twisted theatrics. Using a powerful mixture of voiceover, music and movement, Zebedee evoked the nightmarish world of unwanted toys left to rot in the attic. Old friends such as dolls and teddy bears were brought to life once again with dark humour and the scene was set for a battle like no other as those damaged and cast aside prepared to battle with the ever popular, plastic fantastic barbies. With a stunning set and costumes, hilarious characters and top class food, The Twisted Toys tea Party was a great success. It is a formula we are very keen on using again for more fully themed dramatic dining events in the future.
The Messiah
Zebedee's first and longest running show was a very contemporary, site specific enactment of Steven Berkoff's 'The Messiah'. Set in a World War 2 bunker with dripping walls, the piece led you down to the underground world of Jesus Christ and the dark depths of the most famous story ever told. Berkoff uses crude language and morbid humour to ground 'the messiah' in a world of blokes and tit jokes. In doing so he questions the humanity of this person we call Christ- was he divine or just a clever manipulator with something to gain? Viewers of Zebedee's breath-taking production were left to ponder this question while bathed in candlelight and led through winding underground chambers. Discovering scenes of passionate love and heartbreaking betrayal, eventually they war led into temptation and ended up dining with the devil. Thanks to the team's clever set design and exhilarating performances, Zebedee's Messiah offered viewers a thrilling opportunity to sit at the table of the Last Supper with Jesus and his followers as they prepare for their biggest performance. It was a truly unique and exciting show- attested to the by the fact that the two week run sold out.
