questquest

Monday, January 21 - 9-11pm
The Cutler

QuestQuest is an interactive & theatrical role-playing performance. Accurately described as a performance version of "Dungeons & Dragons," we bring a collaborative imagination game to the stage, building the story with YOU, the audience!

QuestQuest is part improv show, part strategy game, and part interactive experience. Our story is dictated by the roll of a dice, the maniacal mind of our "Dungeon Master" (narrator), and the collaborative powers of an engaged and enticed audience!
