G.U.S (Grown Up Stage) presents: LARPing November 11th-20th

About the Show:

You are now at the center of Hollow’s heart. Britta is the Dungeon Master and rolls to hit. John makes up songs about popcorn while breaking the rules. David sweats out a dance for his dream girl. And Jenny blasts the best music at The North Pole. Which of these characters are real? What is normal? What is play? And how brave are we–how vulnerable can we get–in revealing who we are and what we need?

WHEN: November 11th – November 20th. Fri/Sat at 7:00pm. Sun at 2:00pm.

WHERE: Community Actor´s Theatre (54th Street, San Diego, CA 92105)
