A theatrical, mystery spectacular within the woods of Monikie Country Park opens to the public today (Wednesday 7 October 2015). DragonQuest, which will see the first ever use of Augmented Reality in a live theatre performance, runs every evening, excluding Mondays, until Sunday 1 November 2015. The Edinburgh-based Vision Mechanics team of designers, along with animation graduates from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, Dundee (DJCAD), have created breathtaking sets and fantastic illusions to wow family audiences and leave lasting impressions on visitors. Visitors are encouraged to download the DragonQuest App in advance, and hunt for tags within the woods which reveal the plot of the story and a hidden world of 3D animated creatures, from hovering flies and goblins to fairies and the dreaded trolls! The App (SneakaPeek AR), which has been built and designed by Lanarkshire-based Colin Purves of itsalivedesign.co.uk, can be downloaded onto Apple, Android and Kindle Fire phones or tablets.

DragonQuest has been supported by Creative Scotland, EventScotland, part of the VisitScotland Events Directorate, and Angus Council.
