My family signed up for the Shakespeare's Script Online and had Mollie as our guide.
This escape room requires participants to find the missing parts of Shakespeare's script in one hour or the playwright would lose his head.
The person who scheduled the room will receive an email with the Zoom and Telescape links. Zoom is needed for the interactions between the guide and the group members and to allow the participants to see the room. Telescape is needed to see the hints and items found in the room.
The links need to be forwarded to any participants that are not sharing a device.
The host will open the Zoom meeting and everyone will watch a video on the room.
Then the game begins.
The room is appropriately decorated to fit the theme.
Participants need to work together to solve the puzzles and need to advise the guide what needs to be done in the room.
Use Telescape to split up tasks among members.
Be specific on what the group wants done whether if it is looking at a painting etc.
For escape room enthusiasts, it will be a different experience since you cannot split the group.
While this is not a traditional escape room, Mollie was able to provide positive interactions that allows for a really fun experience.
Keys to success is to be patient and understanding.
This was a great opportunity for us to play rooms in other cities around the world.
Thanks again for Mollie who had a late night on New Years day with this group from the U.S.
We will definitely check out the other rooms that are available.
We highly recommend trying out these virtual escape rooms.

Thank you so much for your glowing review of our Shakespeare room! We are over the moon that you could join us from all the way across the pond, had a great time with our host Mollie and what a fantastic way to kick off 2021 for you! So good to hear that the set-up of zoom and telescape has been working so well with every virtual experience we've done. Hope we can look forward to welcoming you back to take on some of the other rooms we have to offer online, Room 13 is a new room we've got up and running virtually and a highly recommended one, if you like a bit of a scare!

First time doing an escape room for three of us, second time for the others. Age range 18-53, we all enjoyed it, and the adrenaline soon got pumping as the time ticked by, and the music in the background seemed to get faster towards the end of the hour.

We escaped the room with 5 minutes to spare. The escape room was Shakespeare's Script . Our host Leah was great, cheerful and chatty, she explained everything we needed to know and more.

Visited Escape Live as a couple, during the week and found this to be one of the most difficult escape rooms to date. We have done quite a few escape rooms now and did not expect this to be quite as difficult. There are three rooms to crack, following some very tricky linear clues. The rooms are very dark and it was quite difficult to see and read most of the information. The battery candles weren’t much use and it was also very very warm inside. Lots of padlocks to open and the clues given to us by our host, when we requested them, were also a bit cryptic. The rooms were very well themed though which made it interesting, but it was just a bit too difficult for us.

Shakespeare's Script was a fun themed escape room that added a different dimension to our Stratford visit. Mollie was a great host and gave us just enough clues to keep us moving without giving too much away. Escaped with just 2 mins to spare - would definitely recommend!

One of my colleagues booked this as part of a team-building exercise for part of our marketing team. There were 6 of us playing - along with Stef (our brilliant host/guide) and I have to say that I had much more fun than I'd anticipated. Going through the clues was such good fun and as we were doing it virtually, Stef was the perfect guide. Considering the fact that we actually succeeded and escaped with only 1min 38seconds to go, you can imagine the tension to get to the end. Good fun, good laughs, and good team spirit. I would definitely do this again. Highly recommended.

My sisters and I decided to book the Shakespeare’s Script escape room but on Zoom given the circumstances at the moment. We had an incredible time with Emily, our Gamesmaster, from the chatting and laughing we did beforehand to the actual game experience. She was so clear and explained everything that was happening to make sure we made the most of our time. Highly recommend as something different to do with family and friends (our mother lives abroad so it worked internationally too)! Well done and thanks again Emily!

We have just visited Escape Live today for The Chalice of Champions and we really enjoyed it, very challenging but exciting and we escaped so we were really pleased with ourselves. Our Games Master Emma was brilliant and went through everything with us at the start and the way it is organised you don’t come into contact with another group, masks are to be worn and hands sanitised so we felt perfectly safe as they have addressed Covid-19 well so that the game can continue. A fabulous trip that we all enjoyed and we can’t wait to go back and try Shakespeare’s Script. Thank you for having us 😀😀

Rhiannon was brilliant from start to finish. With an age range from 9 to 75 years old she was hysterical, polite, professional and full of fun. Such a fantastic way to enjoy the evening. Thank you R, watch out for them potatoes!

We will pass your lovely words on to Rhiannon. Keep your eyes on our social media pages for information on new rooms that will be coming soon! In the meantime, why not return and take on our Sherlock Themed - Moriarty The Last Stand room next?

Great fun! Our guide for the evening, Dee, was lovely and didn’t leave us to struggle for too long if we got stuck. We completed the game in a really good time but we are an experienced group who have played lots of online games. Props were made to a good standard and the room looked realistic. Nothing too stressful in the puzzles and everything followed on quite logically. Would thoroughly recommend for an evening’s entertainment. Apologies to Dee for coming into the Zoom room dressed as Halloween characters without warning her!
Thanks to Dee for leaving us to chat in the Zoom room afterwards and not just closing us down at the end

After playing Shakespeare’s Script online, me and my friend decided to come and play Chalice of Champions- it was AMAZING. The room looked so cool and some of the puzzles were original and super fun. The host Emily was amazing, kept us going with lots of jokes and help when we needed it. We didn’t quite make it, but still loved it. Would highly recommend
