Synopsis


We the people have had enough.

We the people will no longer be lied to.

We the people believe it is time for Revolution.


Revolution has engulfed London and a new order must be established.


The course of change never did run smooth though.


Three rival factions have risen from the ashes of old authority and each must champion their cause in this new dawning of our civilization.


In a more and more connected world politics still manages to be something that truly divides us.


Revolution gives an audience of complete strangers a fun and engaging way to interact around politics in an action-packed game environment.


Audiences will find the game aspect of the performance familiar as there are echoes from classic board games but at the same time Revolution is new enough to keep everyone on a level playing field.


We use this game format to engage the audience in the tactics of the Revolution.


By splitting the audience into three distinct factions we pit audience members (often friends) against each other to try and take over our digital map of London.


This leads to alliances, coalitions, backstabbing, spying and worse, just like regular politicking.


At the same time as placing strategic orders, the factions must come up with policies that they wish to see in the new world before they present them to the room and try and defend them.


Adding to the gameplay but also engaging an audience in politics.


Testing their ideals and the way that they present them in the forge of public opinion.


In a decade where political upheaval has bloomed and disillusionment with existing powers skyrockets, the utterance "we need a revolution" is heard more and more often.


This show pushes people to put their money where their mouth is, and enact one.


What will you change?


Why are you the person to tell the world what would be better?


How many people are you willing to cross in order to carry it out?
