An Online Storytelling Game.
Saturday 20th March
Well That Escalated Quickly is a multiplayer interactive storytelling game, designed and facilitated by us, played by you. You don’t need to have any experience of improv or performing to take part, just an internet connection, your imagination and a readiness to jump in and play. We guarantee belly laughs and a friendly, supported space – beyond that, anything could happen!
Your mundane task is suddenly interrupted by an EPIC ADVENTURE.
You need to clean out the garage, but your evil twin keeps getting in the way… and if that wasn’t bad enough an asteroid is on a collision course with earth. Well that escalated quickly…
A host of different scenarios, obstacles and unexpected twists and turns are thrown your way as you work in your team to try to stop things from escalating too quickly.
Improv veteran Catherine Murphy (Tales of Adventure, The Bish Bosh Bash, SteamPunk’d) will guide the story, reacting in the moment to your choices and providing the cast of weird and wonderful characters you meet along the way.
The best part? We’ll do all the work, all you have to do is turn up and play.
“We don’t stop playing because we grow old…we grow old because we stop playing.” -George Bernard Shaw
“It was super fun! Steve was very good at making me feel at ease as I’ve never done improv or role playing games before. Great at getting us to join in…. Would do again and would recommend” – audience member
“We few, we happy few, we came together to do a simple job…. but little did we know the awesome, hilarious, and terrifying adventures that awaited us! A brilliant and cinematic couple of hours of interactive storytelling, that feels strangely like a real shared experience. I’m hooked.” – Tim Whitten
“Enjoyed the welcome and set up. Similar to anticipating someone enter a stage while the voice over welcomed you! [It was] good to get talked through how the task was going to be selected and guidance on our character traits really helped for a novice like me… Honestly laughed SO MUCH my cheeks hurt and immediately wanted to recount exactly what had happened when I left the room” – audience member
£18 per player. Maximum 2 players per device and each person must have purchased a ticket
Sessions run from 7.30pm to 9.30pm. Please note that for the first 15 minutes of your session the host will explain the game rules to you all and give you a chance to settle in. The last 15 minutes will be an opportunity for you to have a bit of ‘pub time’ to chat over your game, remember your favourite moments and have a laugh together. Actual game play time is 90 minutes.
Whilst there is no inherent age limit in the show design, we would advise players are 16+ for a mixed session (i.e. with people you don’t know). However, if you would like to book a group session for younger players, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss this with you.
