Next week Curious Experience Design will premiere Join the Resistance, an interactive theater experience at the Bone Up Brewing taproom. The story being told is one of cyberpunk science fiction, but the experience is one that invites the adult audience to engage in imaginative play.
In the taproom, participants will be stepping into a dystopian future where a government called The Doric Order holds absolute power. Participants, alongside actors playing fictional characters, will be charged with helping the resistance by solving puzzles, running missions, and collaborating with other players to find out which of the actors is the traitor in their midst.
Daud Alzayer, writer and director of this show says of the project, “One of the central goals of my creative work is give everyone, including adults, an opportunity to play make-believe. We spend a lot of time and money on passive entertainment like movies, but experiences like these give you a chance to be in the middle of the action and even to play a leading role if you choose. That is something we get to enjoy as kids, but projects like this give us a chance to recapture that magic as adults.”
Bone Up Brewing is located at 38 Norman Street, and the show will take place on Friday, October 11, at 7 p.m. Tickets are currently on sale.
