The scottish play

A play by William Shakespeare, “The Scottish Play” that, according to theater legend, has been cursed since its first performance in 1606….a play reportedly cursed by a coven of witches in Shakespeare’s day who condemned his use of incantations…a play so powerful that an old superstition says its name should never be uttered in the theater and for those that do, deaths, disasters, falls and mysterious accidents have been the result.

And yet another tragedy has befallen a performance of “The Scottish Play” and The Old Vic Theater has closed with no opening date in sight. Was it the four-hundred-year-old curse or something even more sinister? You and your group of understudies must solve the mystery before another tragedy strikes. Can you avoid bringing down further disaster by not uttering “the play that shall not be named?”

 

Designed in partnership with an OSF artistic team, Escape Ashland’s newest escape adventure is our most immersive and challenging escape room yet.  This intimate playing environment is best suited to groups of 6 or fewer but can accommodate groups of 7.

 

Things to know before you play:

  1. You have 60 minutes to escape from the room. All the clues you need to solve the puzzles are in the room; no special knowledge required.

  2. Please arrive on time; if you are more than 15 minutes late, we may have to reschedule. 

  3. Please do not arrive more than 10 minutes prior to your scheduled time in order to allow time for resetting and cleaning.  

  4. Allow for 75 to 90 minutes total playing time to allow for the introduction, play time, debrief, and picture taking.

  5. You can ask for help at any time. Also, in-game hints are provided over the course of your progress.

  6. There is a restroom adjacent to the game room for use of players at any time. 

  7. There is an emergency exit, and players may leave the space and return at any point during the game.

Accessibility: There are several uneven surfaces and narrow doorways. 

The Scottish Play is located at 509 Siskiyou Boulevard just south of Ashland Fire and Rescue. There is a dedicated parking bay out front. 

The room is completely sanitized in between bookings and staff will be wearing masks.  We ask that players wear masks or face shields in the lobby but players have the option to remove masks during game play.
