The Sea Widow

An immersive theatrical performance with the aim of portraying the lives of the women of Gothenburg throughout history. Their men went out to sea, and sometimes never came back; they carried on. Independence, equality, feminism, love, community: Gothenburg.


Fearsome Thing's first major production in collaboration with Stigberg's Immersive, pioneering their vision to see historical immersive theatre expand and flourish in Gothenburg, working towards even more ambitious projects for the 400 year anniversary celebrations in 2021.


Winner of Best Site-Specific Production at the Gothenburg Fringe Festival 2018.

15-year-old Ali is missing. The police are involved, the entire school are searching.
What exactly do the parents know? Why do the school computers keep crashing?....and who is Umi, the social media phenomenon and the girl everyone wants to be?

Offline is a thriller that talks about freedom of information and our identity. Online you can be whoever you want to be - if you're not satisfied with your life, create a new one. But what happens when it all gets out of control? #FindAli
