Many of you don't know this, but I was once an aspiring actor. Admittedly, I did it mainly to score with girls who had turned to drama to escape a troubled home life, but after realizing that my ability to emote boiled down to "surly", and "surly with puppies", I was forced to give up my SAG card and get a real job.
A real job writing d*ck jokes about video games.
Fortunately for fans of highbrow art, many people suck less than I do, and a few of those people debuted a play titled First Person Shooter last night at the San Francisco Playhouse. The adorable ragamuffins over at GayGamer.net have a review of the piece up on their site, and to say that they liked it would be an understatement on par with saying David Mamet likes swears.
Hit the jump for choice quotes.
The play's plot can be summarized thusly;
With the recent spate of violence blamed on gaming and the number of politicians currently making a name for themselves on this not-so-critical issue, to say this play is timely would be an understatement on par with saying David Mamet has an affinity for curse words.
But, GayGamer, what did you think of the play? We need a verdict!
They enjoyed it! The real question is if it will be a hit with people unfamiliar with the dark backside of the gaming industry, but if this review is any indication, saying it could resonate with the general public would be an understatement on par with saying the entirety of my knowledge about the theatre involves David Mamet saying f*ck over and over again.
