The Empire

Gap III production – November 2019

written and directed by Amanda Crewes

Over 14 years, the immersive augmented-reality online game, Hubris, and its founders, The Empire, have garnered the undivided attention of over 80% of Australia.  When Hubris suddenly goes offline for the first time since its beginnings, a desperate group of vigilantes present the players with an impossible decision, and the Empire are forced to play for their lives.

Presented as a work-in-progress, requesting feedback from audiences. The production will be presented at the Perth Fringe Festival 2020, as part of the Actors’ Hub 4x4x4 event.
