EverScape | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Oct. 6-23 2016
Price: $10-$18



The world of online role-playing games is certainly alluring; if you can't significantly alter a workday that's dystopian or dull, just log in. "Suddenly, you're a special person," notes regional playwright Allan Maule. "The game empowers you in a way real life usually doesn't to be the agent of change or chaos." Maule's cyber-drama, EverScape, won the "Best of Fest" award last summer at the New York Fringe Festival. In it, physical and virtual realities blur as the dysfunctions of four players gradually turn an online competition into a game without frontiers. Heather Strickland directs a cast including Samantha Corey, Areon Mobasher, Sean Brosnahan, and Chris Hinton in this Bare Theatre coproduction with Sonorous Road. —Byron Woods
