What happens when widely known social media presences are put to the ultimate test of honesty in the face of an unseen tech-savvy vigilante? A Fate Worse Than Death looks at the murder mystery genre with fresh eyes and a digital twist. Ten social media influencers find themselves under the thumb of a "Mastermind" as they are led through a series of twisted games intended to uncover the truth about a mysterious suicide. With the help of audience participation in the form of real time interaction via social media, the "Mastermind" will determine which characters go, which characters stay, and which characters receive A FATE WORSE THAN DEATH.
Imagine “Sleep No More” met TV’s “Survivor” smashed up with “Murder on the Orient Express.” Because of this, it is impossible for the audience to experience the same show twice.
A FATE WORSE THAN DEATH is recommended for adults 18+ due to mature themes and language.
