As a part of their INK’D Festival of New Plays, the Playwrights Realm presents 2018 writing fellow Else C. Went’s Initiative. This 29-hour reading will culminate in a presentation on Thursday, April 18 2019. This reading will be directed by Emma Rosa Went.
It's the early 2000s; the internet is still young, the millennium still under warranty, and the new Harry Potter book is coming out soon. Fridays after class, high school students Riley, Clara, Em, Tony and Kendall play D&D fantasy games. Em sorta likes Clara, Kendall sorta likes Em, Riley likes Em's brother Lo, and Tony just likes 4chan. A mid-term transfer introduces gender-dysphoric Ty into the group and the game, but a small-town tragedy brings the fantasy world, and the real one, to a standstill.
