NowLifeImageForest Collective and Pop Up Playground present
Now Life in this House

A new durational role-playing game by Pop Up Playground

For Flooding in the Garden At The Convent.

Lots of debts, lots of secrets, nothing left to sell but the family home – life was terrible for the Russian aristocracy.

Pop Up Playground takes Anton Checkov’s famous play, The Cherry Orchard, and turns it into a participatory event. The characters from the play come to life around the audience and enlist their help. Will you help Lopakhin convince the family to sell their land to developers? Will you convince Trofimov not to marry Anya?

The future of The Cherry Orchard is in your hands…

The Curse

In the shadows, behind the tents, a fortune telling machine beckons. “Cross my palm with silver” reads a cracked and painted banner. But these things are ne’er straightforward. Will it simply tell you your future? Or will there be some kind of trouble…

The Curse is a new game for The Village festival which will be played on Friday the 2nd and Saturday the 3rd of November, 2012, with two sessions each night at 8 and 10 PM. The game lasts up to an hour.

Search out the Pop Up Players’ Tent Boss and his team of showies, fortune tellers and clowns, and cross their palms with silver (or at least a $5 note) for a magical brush with fate you’ll never forget.
