Don't Split The Party
by Nathan Kessler-Jeffrey
Don't Split the Party introduces us to Rick and his college D&D buddies. They haven't spoken in three months and Rick is determined to fix that - by locking everyone in his basement apartment and rekindling their broken relationships over a game of - what else? - Dungeons and Dragons.
Don’t Split the Party was born from playwright Nathan Kessler-Jeffrey’s love for the gaming community and a desire to see it grow as an inclusive space. The love of gathering around the gaming table crosses gender and racial boundaries, yet issues of bias still exist in the gaming world and beyond. That’s why this fun and nerdy comedy tackles issues of language, inclusion, privilege, and communication within a group of friends, illuminating the human cost of exclusion and creating opportunities for empathy and growth.
This show runs approximately two hours.
