Review of UoN Fringe 2019: Adventurers Wanted! by Do Or Dice Theatre at The Platform Club, Northampton
However, I was surrounded by non-experts anyway, so, as I took my Dragonborn form into the basement of The Platform, with helmet fitting badly over my glasses and on my giant, mostly empty head, I and the others relied on our guardian like guide (think Treguard but friendlier, for those old enough to get the reference), Liam Bottazzi. He is a jovial chap, all willing to guide us, but also as the gamesmaster, kill us if we step out of line.
Bottazzi is a good companion for a performance like this, friendly, fun, full of character and silly voices. Able to work the audience, here the game players, with ease. It all oddly works in the most surreal way you can imagine, and perhaps at times, you can see the appeal of this game among a whole group of people who actually know what they are doing from the outset, unlike us.
