Inheritance: a choose-your-adventure experience
By Daniel Arnold, Darrell Dennis, and Medina Hahn
March 3–March 15, 2020
A remote property is up for grabs. Three characters race to claim it. You—the audience—decide how it unfolds.
Set on a vast, rural estate, urban couple Abbey and Noah are on a week-long getaway to visit her father. When they arrive, they find him missing and a local Indigenous man, Frank, staying there instead. When it’s revealed that the colonial rights to the entire property are up for grabs, the audience—with electronic voting devices in hand—decides what happens next and who, if anyone, will be the rightful inheritor of this unceded land.
A daring, interactive play like nothing you’ve experienced, Inheritance puts the power in the palms of its audiences; giving them both the freedom and the responsibility to choose the action of the play. At key moments, the play is halted, multiple plot choices are projected on screen, and the audience picks the path the play takes next, ultimately deciding its outcome.
