Game is an award winning sell out circus-theatre show about three friends who believe they are trapped in a video game. Told through sketch inspired comedy, invented games and Chuck Norris’s Martial Way™ the show is a playful journey about winning, losing and the discomfort of close range paint-ball gunfire.
Inspired by the paranoia of Philip K. Dick, the virtual worlds of computer games, the glory of Takeshi’s Castle and the inherent joy in winning.
Featuring music by the should have been massive martial arts rock band Dragon Sound and a cameo from the voice of The Stanley Parable.
Game was created by three friends joined by their love of 80s martial arts, winning in everything you do and having fun. It's a physical theatre show that combines sketch comedy, circus and paintball gun fire. It's based on the hit indie game the Stanley parable and tells the story of three friends who believe they are trapped inside a computer game. After meeting their narrator (with a surprise visit from the voice of the Stanley Parable) the three friends decide to beat the game and discover the truth of what reality really is. With an abundant amount of geek references from Naruto to Legolas and audience participation in the form of live Duck Hunt the show is a one of a kind and appeals to all ages.
After touring extensively at festivals and theatres around the UK we put Game to rest as an awesome memory and time of our lives. Thanks to BeFest, Circomedia, Jacksons Lane and Bristol Old Vic for all the support. For some behind the scenes action of our R&D process check out the videos on our Youtube channel here.
