Description

In the aftermath of a local high school boy’s mysterious death, Dan and Marion Metcalf are increasingly worried about their son, Zach. He’s apathetic and shuts himself away in the basement to play video games and spend time with Keira, his virtual girlfriend and confidante, giving his parents more to worry about than their own insecurities and lacklustre sex life. When Zach’s best friend, Micky, begins to spend more time around the house, bonding with Dan and flirting with Marion, even Keira cannot anticipate the depth of Zach’s rage and sense of alienation. Will his repressed feelings culminate in a violent act that is sure to go viral?

Editorial Review

“Psychological horror is a genre few playwrights dare tackle which makes Griffiths’ invitation to join Games: Who Wants to Play? one not to dismiss too lightly.” —Louis Hobson, The Calgary Sun
