Join dog & pony dc for the unveiling of the first draft of the opening scene of A Killing Game... and an experiment in audience integration approaches linked to game-playing. We're calling it "Game of Hype."
The Game of Hype is a combination of some of our favorite party games, in the context of the Plague that has hit a modern city. We need your help in setting the rules. This Saturday night June 23 we'll play the first round of the Game, and then we'll play it again... and again.* And in the end, together we hone Round 1 of A Killing Game's Game of Hype.
The evening includes a discussion about game-playing behaviors moderated by Rebecca Sheir

*In this Game of Hype, the ability to "do-over" is a MUST
