L_ve Hangman is a participatory performance based on the classic pencil and paper game Hangman. Life-sized, 3D and reimagined as a macabre light-entertainment gameshow from the 70s.With a catchy original soundtrack, tongue-in-cheek puppetry and awful dress sense, L_ve Hangman is wicked interactive fun for all ages. First created in 2013 the game has been played in venues ranging from art galleries to music festivals and the Eden Project, Barbican Centre, Bristol Old Vic and RSC.

Poised by an 8 foot gibbet a malevolent game show host invites you to choose letters and solve a mystery phrase. The fate of the condemned: a human head with a puppet body, is in the audience’s hands. Self-contained and cyclical, with a brilliant soundtrack by the award winning Kid Carpet,L_ve Hangman is wicked interactive fun for all ages.
