Don’t Hate the Player

Date: 2 Oct 2019

Darcy and her reluctant sister enter the world of a virtual reality video game.

Inside, they are swept up in a drug ring their suburban existence has not equipped them for.

On top of this, their IT histories are available to all players and there’s no way of knowing if those you meet are real or a bunch of pixels.

Both hilarious and strange, this world premiere evokes a new reality for both characters and audience. How many games do we play already?

Written and directed by Laura McDonald, this production features Atharv Kolhatkar, Madeleine Osborne, Cassius Russell and Rhiannon Watson.
