LARPing Press Release

Trinity Theatre Company Presents the World Premiere of LARPing


Growing San Diego Professional Theatre Brings a Fresh, Comedic Role Play to City Heights Stage for a Limited Run November 11th-20th


Reviewers are invited to attend the opening performance of LARPing Friday, November 11th, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. 


San Diego, CA – 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? 


Trinity Theatre Company’s world premiere production of LARPing, written by Brian Grace-Duff & Greg Romero and directed by Sean Boyd & Eddy Lukovic, addresses these questions and more by taking its audience on a hilarious deep-dive into the world of Live Action Role Play (LARP). The show will run November 11th-20th for six performances only at the Community Actor’s Theatre in City Heights.


Beyond the playwriting team of Brian Grace-Duff & Greg Romero, the production team and cast of LARPing is made up entirely of professional local talent. The play is directed by Sean Boyd & Eddy Lukovic, with scenic design by Dennis Floyd, costume design by Rebecca Rankin, lighting design by Dylan Carter & Ashley Malli, and prop creation by Bertha Tsai. The show is stage managed by Kathy Parks, assistant stage managed by Adriana Cuba, with intimacy consulting by Kandace Crystal. The cast consists of Kimberly Weinberger as Britta/Jenny and Jonny Taylor as John/David.


LARPing closely examines personal identity and self-exploration in a fresh, innovative way. Brian and Greg have brilliantly crafted a theatrical experience that pushes its audience to reflect on the possibilities and limits of their own identities and relationships through the lens of live action roleplay,” said Sean Boyd, the Artistic Director of Trinity Theatre Company. “Not to mention…it’s fun and it’s funny.” 


LARPing opens on November 11th at the Community Actor’s Theatre in City Heights with performances running through November 20th. Tickets can be purchased for $20 online at


Discounts for seniors, students, military, and large groups are available. Plus, with Trinity’s “Bring a 2nd Sundays” promotion, the code “Fr13ndsh1p” can be used to purchase two tickets for the price of one for either of the Sunday performances (November 13th or 20th).


Brian Grace-Duff is a Philadelphia-based playwright with a passion for theatre’s immediacy and interdisciplinary possibilities through true collaborations and devising. He has brought work to the stage as an event coordinator, stage manager, designer, and technician, with artists such as Laurie Anderson, Naomi Iizuka, John Clancy, Tectonic Theatre Project, The Globe Theatre, and MoMix. As a playwright, he chases narratives through myths young and old; impossible stage direction; and restructuring plots, forms, and genres. His scripts have been presented at Rowan University (In America, That is to Say No Where), PlayPenn (r/LYPSE, a sub-Reddit of our Dark Lips and Heart), Philadelphia Theatre Company (For Change) , and BRAT Productions (The Last Plot in Revenge), among others.
