Truly Horrible Things
You’re not a drama queen, you’re a drama hero
A smelly costume. Unblended make up. Being tricked into naming the Scottish play. So many things about the thing we love are terrible things. So hey, why not play cards?
Game play is simple
Each round the "judge" will read a question card like: "What's the fastest way to ruin a show?" or "My stage manager will not tolerate ____."
Each player selects their best answer from their hand. Then judge reads them aloud and picks the winner. The next round starts and the judge changes to the next player. The game can be quick with a few hands or last for hours!
Who should play it?
Theatre Is Tragic was written by theatre professionals and is appropriate for high school theatre students but will be enjoyed even more by their directors. Get a few sets to keep the kids occupied when they are hanging out in the drama room at lunch, or backstage between scenes. You've got stuff to do.
