Swarm the East End with a group of fifty people on a theatrical guided audio tour that ends in the Theater District with Alley Theatre’s pedestrian-based Remote Houston now through Friday, May 13, 2016.

Meet up, put on headphones and transport yourself to a hidden Houston on a guided audio tour presented by Alley Theatre that seems to follow you as much you are following it.

The tour begins eerily in the East End neighborhood’s Evergreen Cemetery where a computer-generated voice sets you out on a trail through the city, guiding the group’s movements in real time where those attending will find new ways to participate with the surrounding city through tasks concluding in the Theater District.

The performance reveals facets of the city normally unseen, pockets where crowds gather, Downtown’s underground tunnel system, areas of Houston typically unseen as well as common areas seen through a new lens.
