Untitled Theater Company No. 61 Presents An Indie Theater Virtual Simulation Game

Each game is moderated on Zoom by creator Edward Einhorn. 

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.

Edward Einhorn is both a playwright and a children's book author. Children's books include the picture books A Very Improbable Story and Fractions in Disguise (Charlesbridge/Penguin Random House), as well as the Oz sequels Paradox in Oz and The Living House of Oz (Hungry Tiger Press).
