HOW IT WORKED

 

BEFORE THE SHOW

After being ushered into a semi-circle around the playing space, audiences would tune into a Youtube Live track that would play all prerecorded dialogue, scoring, and theatrical effects straight into their car. Actors wore headphones in order to gesticulate along to the Youtube Live track as well listen to the stage manager for cues.

DURING THE SHOW

r/TheRedPill was entirely lit by car headlights, strategically placed and embellished with gels around the lot.

AS IT ENDED

As the climax peaks, cops arrive and the characters scatter away behind the audience cars. The Youtube Live that had previously been streaming solely audio lights up with a Zoom call between the three protagonists the morning after the events of the play. As they debate whether or not their actions held any worth, the stream is overtaken.
