Join us NEXT Tuesday for our Public Reading Series! What: This reading will be Deborah Yarchun’s LARPers, with a moderated discussion by our playwritght- in-residence, Matthew A. Everett Synopsis: After failing out of community college, Sam, 21, attempts to restore his confidence and gain control through organizing a live action role playing group (think live Dungeons & Dragons), but the only person who shows up is his emotionally unstable older sister Claret. Sam and Claret attempt to repair their fraught relationship and slay their inner demons through Live Action Role Playing. Set in a small coastal town in Downeast Maine, LARPers explores the fine line between sibling abuse and sibling rivalry, living with a mental illness in America, and the roles we play in each other’s lives. The reading is directed by Meggie Greivell and the cast includes Catherine Hansen, Kelliann Kary, and Ben Kolis.
