The Order of the Flying Monkeys
by Anthony Brien
Sam is a recent loser in love after his partner left him for their Feng Shui consultant. After months of sobbing in his chi balanced home, his life changes with the rattle of the letterbox. Excitedly, he peels himself from the sofa in case it’s a new takeaway menu, but instead finds a leaflet for the most difficult and realistic escape room in the UK. Sam decides it is time to reweave the worn thread of his neglected friendships and attempt this most difficult of escape rooms. As the friends attempt the escape room, events take a turn for the surreal and they are unsure whether the game is real or something truly apocalyptic. They must realise the truth of the game before either their friendship, their sanity or potentially their lives are lost. Most importantly, they must get to the pub before last orders.
