Theater of Ideas presents Poor Players, an indie theatre simulation game.

Miss live theater in tiny venues? Become the Artistic Director of your very own independent theater company! Put on a conceptual production of a Shakespeare play! Get mixed reviews! Go bankrupt!

All the fun of running a theater company can be yours in the RPG from Untitled Theater Company No. 61, a real life indie theater company in New York, creating virtual programming during Covid. Each player puts on a production and rolls the dice to see how it all goes. Can you put on a quality show and still remain solvent? Probably not. But here is your chance to find out.

Each game is moderated on Zoom by creator Edward Einhorn. Participants also receive a rule book and character sheets. All they need to bring is a couple of dice. Running time 1 - 2 hours.

Tickets $5 at untitledtheater.com Extra performances: Sunday February 21 at 5pm and Sunday March 7 at 5pm. Performances will continue bi-weekly indefinitely. For more information visit www.untitledtheater.com.
