What I liked

I thought the ways the audience could interact with the cast were diverse and clever, without being difficult to learn. I appreciated a story that I could see my fellow audience members and myself affecting and I really enjoyed how believable and adaptable the cast were at their roles as various gods. I also appreciated a less mainstream set of gods being portrayed, with, as far as I can tell, accurate knowledge of myths pertaining to them AND compelling personal narratives and opinions.

What I didn't like

It took me most of one show to complete a quest line; I wished I could do more, but at the same time I think my time investment helped me feel like I was part of the experience, so I can’t really complain. Best recommendation is to go again and do a different quest!

My overall impression

I had a great time. The cast was compelling and the interactive elements of the play were very engaging.
