The Play

A Dress Rehearsal Gone Terribly Wrong by Dierdra Kiai

You are Ainsley M. Warrington and you are an acclaimed director. Tonight’s play is James Dough’s Nothing’s Fair in Love, Art or War. And the quote pretty much sums up the premise of the game:

All right, Ainsley. This is it. Just one more run through the entire play, and we’ll be all good to go. Never mind that your leading lady had a serious allergic reaction to the face paint and needed to be replaced at the very last minute. And for that matter, never mind that the rest of the cast has only had a grand total of two weeks to rehearse.

Language: Polished- not in the poetic sense, but in the ‘no typos and proper grammar’ sense- and frequently humourous.

Plot: Solid through and through. There is some character development and some really sweet moments which make this game very worth playing.

Mechanics: Nothing special as far as I can see. It’s written in Undum, which makes it rather more like hypertext than traditional IF.
