We’re listed as Immersive bu only because there is no “INTERACTIVE” option!

THE STUDY takes place during a psychological clinical test of the flight-or-fight response set in a college lecture hall. The audience’s reactions and answers determine the outcome of each performance; in this immersive, audience-interactive, video game and theatre-inspired piece. Created by Jared Tyrel Pixler and David Evan Stolworthy, the creators of THE VIDEO GAMES, which ran for nearly three years. THE STUDY has a cast of eleven characters, many of which are from the worlds of the creator’s premiere plays; Let Me Out and Roommates. No show will be like the last in this scripted, choose-your-own adventure style play.

Can the audience make it so everyone escapes alive?
