Alpha Psi Omega Presents: "Voyage of the Devil's Daughter"
The Alpha Psi Omega Theatre Honors Society presents “Voyage of the Devil’s Daughter,” a swashbuckling live performance of the role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons. The production will take place from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 7 in McArdle Theatre (Walker 207).
“Voyage of the Devil’s Daughter” follows the exploits of a rag-tag bunch of pirates on a dangerous expedition into uncharted waters. Believing they are in search of a priceless treasure hoard, the misfit crew of the Devil’s Daughter soon find themselves embroiled in the midst of a far greater adventure.
The event is a live production of Dungeons and Dragons, a role-playing game where players roll dice to create a story through collaboration, improvisation and chance. The gamemaster, or “dungeon master,” creates a world for the players’ characters to inhabit and sets up the story. Players then roll dice and improvise to determine their characters’ actions, which the gamemaster reacts to and interprets. None of the character actions or interactions are scripted in advance. Players double as actors, improvising their characters’ dialog and choices, and the gamemaster weaves these ad-libbed events into a story.
“Voyage of the Devil’s Daughter” is written, directed and performed by members of Alpha Psi Omega and friends, and is entirely funded by the student organization. Some adult themes and language will be present in the performance. The event is free and open to the public.
