Phoenix Tears productions is one of the shining pillars in interactive theatre. Every month they perform a series of short plays written by local writers and cast from local actors and directors. These shows usually only last a couple minutes, but every show has multiple performances, sometimes with a special local musician to spice things up.

Alongside this, they perform interactive, audience participation plays, where the audience quite literally becomes a part of the production. An audience member may walk directly up to an actor and ask them questions, and they will find out new information that nobody else knows. Every one of their interactive shows features a main character who is murdered, then the audience has to decide who did it.
