A brave new theatre experience which makes the audience the main character, this year's Rooms Play focuses on the theme "Immigration and Alienation" as it leads groups of four through 22 rooms populated by over 60 actors. The play begins at the WHOLE Gallery and concludes at the Current Space with a guided streetwalk transition. This event is presented as part of the 8th annual Transmodern Festival.
Named "Best Shit We Totally Missed" by City Paper in the 2010 Best of Baltimore issue, Rooms Play is totally getting the look it deserves this year as part of the Transmodern Festival. Built on a choose-your-own-adventure/haunted-mansion motif, the play shifts conventions to make the audience the main character as it brings members through 22 different rooms, each focused on the theme "Immigration and Alienation." Groups of four or less are led to interact with and problem-solve their way through each scene in a trippy sequence, which consists of more than 60 actors and includes a guided transition to the Current Space, where the play concludes. We imagine it's what Mike Teevee must've felt like in Wonkavision, and we're not missing it this time. (Jerard Fagerberg)
