Play this storytelling game about actors who rewrite the Shakespearean roles they’ve been given. We will collectively create actors (with types like the Lead, the Ham, or the Ingenue); then bid on the parts for a play we choose in a play like Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, or a Midsummer Night’s Dream. Everyone plays their parts, while dealing with everyone’s changes made to the story. There is an economy of story points, along with Parts, Plots, and Props that actors collect – and dice to roll if we disagree over an edit.
