Of Dice and Men
Written by Cameron McNary, Directed by James Martineau
A remount of Otherworld’s first full length production from spring of 2014, Of Dice and Men will premiere on YouTube on July 31st and will be available for viewing until August 14th, at which point it will move to Otherworld’s Pateron page.
Few dungeon masters can make the game come to life better than John Francis. Dwarves, Mages and Barbarians jump right off of their character sheets whenever he sits down at the gaming table of frisky suburbanite parents, Linda and Brandon. John Francis’ best friends, sailor-mouthed John Alex and thoughtful jock Jason, bring roguish swagger and knightly nobility to the game. And the object of John Francis’ affection, the feisty Tara, provides all the Half Elven Double Princess backstory they could ever need.
But when Jason enlists to go to Iraq and with the relationship with Tara going nowhere, it may be time for John Francis to hang up his twenty sided dice and take a job on the other side of the country. However, John Francis is about to discover that leaving will prove tougher than the Tomb of Horrors.
A blisteringly funny and heartwarming comedy about gamers, for a general theatre audience.
*Recommended for ages 14+. Note that the play contains strong language throughout, viewer discretion is advised.
