September 6-October 4

2021 Fringe Festival

1 hour


The InternetMap

Wheelchair Accessible

A stairway to heaven beside the water, a surprise garden just off of Pine, a bar outside of Fishtown, and glimpses into the Fae Wilds. Found is a scavenger hunt audio adventure where Philadelphia residents will go on the search for pockets of magic throughout the city. When they find special QR codes at these magical locations, which they’ll discover with the help of puzzles and clues released online, our audience members will find scenes of fairy life in Philadelphia. This includes audio dramas like an angry goblin fed up with guarding a magical mailbox, fairies playing “Humans & Houses” in a coffee shop, a stop motion video of trolls rating restaurants, and more.
