This is an experimental Larp based on the Philip Ridley play of the same name. It relies heavily on collaborative storytelling and improvisation (if that sounds scary, this may not be the game for you.)
We are all people with no memories. We find ourselves in a broken place where we will name each other and tell magical stories. In these stories we will take on the roles of Princes and Queens, Witches and Monsters.
Maybe, as we become other people, we will discover some of the truth of who we are.
Venue TBA. Contact email@example.com for more details.

Dr Who: The Oncoming Storm
The Last Great Time War rages across the universe. Millions die every second, lost in bloodlust and insanity, with time itself resurrecting them to find new ways of dying over and over and over again. And now, Arcadia has fallen, and a Dalek fleet is bombarding Gallifrey. The Time Lords quail in absolute terror. The Last Day has begun.
But before the end, before the Moment, before the end of time itself, there is a last, desperate chance for peace. Caught within the time lock, the Daleks have sent envoys offering a treaty. Lord President Rassilon has assembled an Emergency High Council to hear them, and to agree plans for the future of Gallifrey when they have escaped. And from outside the time lock, The Doctor has arrived - two of him! Can he untangle their temporal knot, and break their bubble of stasis? And can Time Lords and Daleks end their apocalyptic war that has ravaged time and space? Or will it all burn?
“The Oncoming Storm” is a game of politics, science fiction, and emotional introspection for 13 players by Tony Vila and Aili Klein. It lasts 6 hours and has lengthy character sheets. All background is provided so a complete newcomer to the “Doctor Who” television show can enjoy the game, but fans of the canon will find a lot of it brought together in these characters.
Venue and price TBA. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
