This game is a ton of fun-- you're basically improvising a whole play live (although the rules offer a ton of structure to help you do that, and messing up is part of the fun). Nevertheless probably not the best fit if you don't like to be put on the spot. No familiarity with the works of Oscar Wilde is required.It's opening night at the Westlake Theatre, and you are woefully unprepared to go on.
Due to a ludicrous level of mismanagement by the director and producer alike, you have neglected to hold a single rehearsal. In fact, you haven't even bothered to pick up a script. Frankly, you don't even remember what show you're supposed to be putting on. All you know for sure is that it's meant to be a comedy by the master of the Victorian farce, Oscar Wilde. With only that to go on, you're just going to have to improvise.
It's a comedy of manners, so that means self-absorbed characters weaving increasingly complex webs of deception to make themselves look good, played by actors doing everything in their power to keep the show from grinding to a halt. Cobble together a plot out of whatever sets you have on hand. Lie, cheat, and steal the spotlight through three breathless acts of quick changes, missed cues, and bon mots. Do whatever you must to keep the audience's attention until the final curtain and the thunderous applause you so richly deserve.
