Part live role-playing game, part devised play, In the Arms of the Pack: Audience Edition is a hybrid Live Action Role Playing Game (LARP) and interactive play, which puts half the audience in the role of a pack of monsters (vampires, werewolves, or fae) and the other half in the director’s seat, letting them guide the narrative. The show aims to explore how personal relationships and group dynamics respond to external threats. There is no pre-written script, and no actors apart from the participants.
The show was based on the LARP In the Arms of the Pack by Emily Care Boss, part of her Romance Trilogy of roleplaying games. It was first performed at the Game Play Festival 2017, at the Brick Theater in Brooklyn.
