Director Ben Layne and actors Michael Sung-Ho, Jesse Corder, Garek Bushnell, Ben Resman, and John Leaf discuss Freshwater Theatre’s The Gifted Program and tabletop roleplaying!
Roleplaying games have become a larger part of my life in the last few years, so it’s a treat to talk about a play that has a roleplaying group as a plot element.
The Gifted Program runs in repertory with Freshwater Goes Back to High School at Nimbus Theatre from April 12th through 27th.
The foundation I mentioned in the podcast connected to Gary Gygax is actually the Tékumel Foundation, which is dedicated to the legacy of M.A.R. Barker, a contemporary of Gygax. I had conflated these giants of roleplaying in my head. Don’t send me hate mail.
I talk more about the roleplaying session which occurred after the podcast at Minnesota Playlist.
