A bold and unparalleled multi-choice narrative, in which every 10-12 minutes the audience votes to determine how the story progresses…When an urban couple arrives for a week-long getaway at their dad’s vast rural estate, they find him gone and another man living there instead. They ask the man to leave, but he doesn’t want to go… and the audience decides what happens next. And when it’s revealed that the rights to this entire property are actually up for grabs, the audience must choose — democratically via every vote they make — who, if anyone, will be the ‘rightful’ inheritor of the land. This showing of Inheritance is an interactive play-in-progress, written & performed by Daniel Arnold, Darrell Dennis, and Medina Hahn. The work is slated to premiere in Vancouver February 28-March 15, 2020.
A workshop presentation from Alley Theatre and Touchstone Theatre.
