GAM3RS the Play: A one-man show about the secret lives of gamers. Two nights only!

How often do gamers get out to see live theatre? Once? Never? But what if the show was about them? And FREE!

This hit comedy was praised by the critics in New York: “Brian Bielawski and Walter G. Meyer get so much right about the life of a gaming geek, here embodied in the character Steve (played believably by Bielawski), an MIT dropout who rules the universe of an online role-playing game and works a real life tech support job to support his virtual one, that the non-gaming members of the audience which find his behavior so bizarrely funny would probably be shocked to learn how accurate the portrayal actually is. What’s fun about this show is that it packs more inside gamer/techie/webhead jokes into an hour than seems possible without leaving the ‘outsider’ part of the audience behind, and thus everyone gets to have a good time. Both gamers and non-gamers alike will enjoy its humor.” -Gregory Wilson, curtainup.com

Gamers the play will be at the MIT Museum two nights only:

March 13, Friday 8 p.m.
March 14, Saturday 8 p.m.

The hour-long show will be followed by a half-hour discussion with the actor and writers about gaming and the theatre)

Doors open at 7 and the event is FREE!

I saw the Friday evening show, and was spellbound. Not only is it a play about gaming, it is a great play. Tremendous dramatic tension, great acting and very funny. I would highly recommend it to anyone who can make it to Cambridge tomorrow night.
