A play that changes with each performance– based on the roll of the dice–In the Castle of Eternal Sunset follows two teenage boys as they play a game of Dungeons & Dragons on an autumn day in 2004. As the teenagers roll to see what happens next, their different possible futures slowly unfold— both in and outside the game.
During the play, audience members will be prompted to read aloud fragments of text from their seats, determined randomly by the fall of the dice. The texts contain the hundred different possibilities of how the boys’ lives might unfold. Their fates, then, are never set— until the die rolls, each performance, set them on their path— and the audience speaks their futures into being.
In the Castle of Eternal Sunset requires 10 audience participants for each performance. Participants will be asked to read short passages from the comfort of their seat and will never be asked to come onstage.
