The Stacks, a new immersive theatre piece created by QC actor/director Ben Gougeon, will hold its world premiere February 22-March 2 and will be hosted by Sound Conservatory in downtown Moline. The show will take place in the old library stacks of the newly relocated music academy at the former Carnegie Library.

Based around a fictional unsolved murder, The Stacks invites audiences to the night of September 25, 1957, when the body of Sam Hawkins is found in the stacks of a small Catholic college library . The play takes place simultaneously on multiple floors and in multiple rooms, and as the story unfurls, audience members can decide where to go and what to see, ensuring that everyone’s journey is unique, and each visit is different. Each character has a specific track and tells a different perspective of the story. Guests can choose to follow one actor or move around to different scenes in an attempt to answer the question, “Who killed Sam Hawkins?”

The Stacks: An Immersive Mystery will perform at Sound Conservatory’s downtown Moline location located at 504 17th St. on February 22, 23, 24, 29 and March 1 & 2. All performances begin at 7:30pm. Doors open to the public 30 minutes before curtain. Advanced reservations are highly encouraged as capacity is limited.
