Dating and Dragons Recommended Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: July 8-Aug. 13 2016

There are strategies involved in the games of life, romance, and play, whether it's conquering dragons or being vulnerable enough to fall in love, and there’s a reason people don’t play these games alone. Writer Mike Ooi delivers a simple story of puppy love, pop culture, and nerdy awkwardness in this Factory Theater production—Jack (Nick Freed) is a Dungeons & Dragons-playing everyman who struggles to find a sweetheart while working in a video store. The show is wildly creative in its telling: the cast often breaks the fourth wall to make sure the audience is still in on the fun and able to follow along. It's silly and inviting, a welcome approach to a tale of friendship. —A.J. Sørensen

Price: $10-$25
