We had a lovely time at Center Stage’s Backstage @ Center Stage! We got to play video games and play dress up and talk to all sorts of people about our next show, Leveling Up.

And CHECK OUT OUR NEW SIGN! Compliments of Icy Signs via the Love Letter to Baltimore project by the Baltimore Office for Promotion and the Arts. Look for it around town, especially at the Mercury Theatre, where Leveling Up will be performed. We’re so in love.

We are so excited to officially announce our next show!

Leveling Up

By Deborah Zoe Laufer
Directed by Sarah Scafidi

Living in fantasy. Playing in reality.

Twenty-something roommates Ian, Chuck, and Zander spend every day locked away in their Las Vegas basement playing video games along with Zander’s girlfriend, Jeannie. Ian is a video game master making his living by helping amateur gamers to “level up”. When he is approached by the National Security Agency to turn his virtual talents into real time warfare, the line between fantasy and reality blurs. Deborah Zoe Laufer’s new, coming-of-age play asks what it really means to connect in a world ruled by screens.

"I like plays that are a little weird, but grounded in the acting work. It keeps things theatrical and interesting."

You will indeed find us at Charm City Fringe this November, however, due to an issue with rights, we will no longer be producing The Aliens by Annie Baker. Stay tuned for the announcement of our new show soon!
