What I liked

I very much enjoyed the central conceit of fight for or against free will. I was impressed with each and every one of the actors improvisation and skill with directing the audience! As someone who doesn’t typically enjoy theatre or interactive experiences, I have to say this show found a way to fully engage my interest and attention. I would happily return to try out paths I didn’t explore before.

What I didn't like

I didn’t completely grok the point of getting the colored stones that matched my pantheon and what it meant to win the most points there. I wasn’t clear on how it impacted the endgame battle.

My overall impression

This show was highly entertaining and well-crafted. One of the best immersive theatre experiences I’ve had.
