Adelaide Fringe 2020 Reviews
★★★★ "It was fun, imaginative and a great way to learn about the techniques of theatre, as well as an introduction to the ideas of improvisation (and just how silly actors can sometimes be!)." -The Clothesline
"Both Sean and Hollie are wonderful, engaging actors who connect immediately with their audience, putting them at ease and encouraging them to contribute to the fun." - Theatre Travels
"..all the kids called onto the stage seem to revel in the experience." - The Advertiser
The world's stories have gone missing, but with outrageous accents, live sound effects, some unconventional storytelling skills, and YOUR help, the inspired inspectors of The Bureau Of Untold Stories are going to get them back!
The silly, sleuthing adventures of The Pink Panther meets the unpredictable hilarity of Whose Line is it Anyway? in this imagination-igniting detective drama that's fun for the whole family.
Detectives Dexter Sharpe and Poppy Hasluck have pinned the stolen stories on a notorious criminal mastermind, known simply as The Eraser, but will need assistance to bring him to justice. The pair decide to host a recruitment day to find a new member of the team. Via a series of interactive, interchangeable, storytelling activities Dexter, Poppy, and the audience recreate a number of the stories stolen by The Eraser in an attempt to save the day.

We're Sean and Hollie Bryan, the creators of Brymore Productions. We established our boutique theatre company in 2015 to create immersive and engaging theatrical events designed to ignite imagination and spark creativity in young audiences.
We create larger than life characters and work in a semi-improvised performance style. This allows audiences and participants to guide our performance, improving engagement and ensuring every showing is a unique event. Our performances often involve puppetry and various interactive elements that get audiences up onto their feet, immersing them into the world created before them.
Previous productions include Mortimer Sparks, Bexley's Brilliant Birthday, Madame Manocchio's Magnificent Mobile Museum of Mysteries, and A Bug's Party.
