Technology and family don't mix in this new comedy/adventure epic!
“The Game” is an epic comedy/fantasy where two siblings get sucked into the world of video game, fighting crazy (and very funny) characters to save the kingdom of 'Farnawee' from an evil queen. The play explores the importance of family in the modern day, and questions what role technology plays in keeping a family together. Think 'Monty Python' or 'Shrek' meets 'Harry Potter' & 'Lord of The Rings.'
