About the Story

The important thing in acting is: stay in character, and don't get mixed up in the another play.

A clever, short comedic piece, December 6, 2013
by streever (America)

There isn't a lot going on here, but the basic premise is amusing and humorous.

The writing is consistently funny and clear, and responses to bad input are done well.

I'd like to see this fleshed out and made into a larger piece. As it was, it was a fun, short diversion.

Not much to offer., December 6, 2013
by Katrisa (Houston)

I liked the idea of going into and out of different plays, as the description suggested, but there really wasn't very much to it. There's not much to say to condemn this game but absolutely nothing to recommend it besides a sliver of a concept it may have been based off of. There was so little to this that it's nearly impossible to discuss. Downloading it and playing will be a waste of five minutes.
