“A sure hit”

The Age

Welcome, dear one. Please do come in. We at the House of Usher are so very sorry for your loss.

While you are waiting on the casket, perhaps you’d like to step this way and take a journey with us... A journey to the edge of madness.

The immersive theatre experience A Midnight Visit has been unleashed on Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and Brisbane since 2018. Tens of thousands of guests have surged into the House of Usher’s labyrinth and emerged exhilarated and changed.

A multi room, multi-sensory and magnificently macabre experience, A Midnight Visit invites you to explore a dark dreamworld of thrills, obsession, decadence and awe. A performance experience like no other, you will encounter strange characters, eldritch scenes and uncanny splendour as we invite you to journey deeper and deeper still into the depths of mystery.

No two journeys are the same, be it nightmare or fantasy, remembering or premonition. Expect the unexpected and expect all senses to be tantalised – even (especially) the sixth.

Inspired by the life and works of the granddaddy of gothic Edgar Allan Poe, A Midnight Visit is part choose your own adventure, part performance, part sound world, part surreal playground and all parts absorbing.

So come, won’t you join us? The House of Usher invites you to a hedonistic night out of a very different, dark and decadent variety.
