If you're in or around the Valley this winter, you are in prime position to completely submerge into a world of theatrical delight. Inside an old warehouse, 38 rooms set the stage for Love Lust Lost, the latest production from the convention-shattering creative collective Broad Encounters. Courtesy of the team's sky-high production limits (and creative prowess), you will explore at least 20 of the rooms during your visit — so you'll need to come more than once to discover every nook.

You'll set sail into a tumultuous ocean of heartbreak and desire, bravery and passion, led by your captain, Hans Christian Andersen. The fairytale great's story is imagined alongside those of Jules Verne and Joseph Conrad, with their intimate worlds brought to life with soundscapes, spoken word, dance, circus and taste. (There are discounted tickets especially for CP readers, too.)

The true delight of your literary-fuelled adventure exists in the delightfully unknown aspects. Let your curiosity take over as you follow your captain into the storm, chasing each clue and desire as the mystery unfurls. And, use code LOVECP at the checkout for 15% off tickets (excludes Saturdays).

'Love Lust Lost' is in residence in Fortitude Valley from now until Sunday, August 21. Head to the website to grab your tickets.
