Win his fridge! Win his CD collection! Win his eczema cream! Win his plasma television!
Welcome to Game Show.
From the creators of Fun Run comes Game Show, the second performance in The Coming Out Trilogy. Game Show is a show biz spectacle that examines one man’s desperate pursuit of fame and what he is willing to sacrifice for a chance at the big time. As your host Tristan Meecham will put it all up for grabs in his quest to win your adoration. Each night, fifty contestants with no performance experience, compete live on stage for the chance to take home a grand showcase of prizes: the hosts very own possessions!
Game Show fuses game play, moral dilemmas and live cinema together in a critique of celebrity, materialism and competition. What would you do to win? Does what we risk determine what we value? Will the winner really take it all?
