Playwright and one-time Wold of Warcraft player Jennifer Haley has written a play about the addictive nature of life in a virtual world and the potential desire to leave the real world for the alternate reality forever. With games taking up more and more of our awareness, and new hardware like the Oculus Rift VR headset promising a very real modern solution to complete immersion in the gamespace, the play comes at an important time.
The show opened in Culver City, California (interestingly, only blocks away from where the annual IndieCade independent games festival is held) to rave reviews.
