Foundry playwrights Emily Acker, Emma Goidel, and Douglas Williams have teamed up with director Maura Krause to create Safe Space, a new play with stage management by Foundry playwright Lena Barnard. Safe Space premiers this Wednesday at the Philadelphia FringeArts Festival under the pop-up company Apocalypse Club.
From the writers:
Safe Space is a one-of-a-kind production embedded in Williams’s South Philly home. The beer will be chilled and the music tastefully obscure; but once the proper vibe has been established, the co-written play will emerge from unexpected directions, featuring characters that yearn to invent the first climate change apocalypse live action role-playing game ever!
That’s right: CLIMATE CHANGE APOCALYPSE LARPING. With beer. Now that has the makings of a killer party! Or perhaps just an incredibly weird one. Either way, a memorable experience for all.
