Leveling Up By Deborah Zoe Laufer, directed by Sarah Scafidi
Twenty-something roommates Ian, Chuck, and Zander spend every day locked away in their Las Vegas basement playing video games along with Zander’s girlfriend, Jeannie. Ian is a video game master making his living by helping amateur gamers to “level up”. When he is approached by the National Security Agency to turn his virtual talents into real time warfare, the line between fantasy and reality blurs. Deborah Zoe Laufer’s new, coming-of-age play asks what it really means to connect in a world ruled by screens.
“Deftly directed by Sarah Scafidi…leaving an audience mulling over big questions is a hallmark of good theater.” —WYPR
“Leveling Up is a perfect choice for this young company. This is a solid presentation by this young upstart on the local theater scene. Baltimore should look forward to more productions as Interrobang grows and matures as a company. It is well worth a look!” —MD Theatre Guide
