See You In C8
In the middle of March 2020, the theatre industry in NYC shut down. Over the weeks that followed, live events throughout the U.S. went dark as people sheltered in place for safety.
But people didn’t stop creating and connecting.
While primarily a stage manager by profession, I’ve always had a fondness for hosting elaborate parties. Determined to raise my friends’ spirits and possessing a horrible weakness for escalation, themed online hangouts transformed into fully immersive, intimate virtual experiences, with the limitations of being an unemployed theatre worker stuck in their apartment also opening the doors to new avenues of creativity.
In July 2020, a friend asked if it would be possible for a themed birthday hangout to become a murder mystery party. What resulted four weeks later was a custom-built 5-hour event for 17 players, each with a unique character, making their ways through an original storyline via multiple locations, puzzles, and platforms in collaborative gameplay.
Now both producing my own events and available for creating customized commissions (that only escalate as much as you want them to!), Inside C8 Productions is excited to continue to connect in new ways that are as accessible as possible.
January 2021: The New Years’ Office Party
We hope that you’ll join us for the Chromonia Institute’s office party to celebrate the new year… and to make sure that the year 2020 stays in the past where it belongs! Time has been awfully strange lately, and we depend upon timekeepers like yourselves to keep us on track.
Founded in 1985 in anticipation of the new millennium, the Chromonia Institute is a deep-state operation gone rogue. Originating in the United States with the intention of erasing portions of the past, internal leadership took control and were able to splinter off to become their own semi-independent shadow agency in 1999. Now, the Institute monitors the timeline for irregularities and smooths out any wrinkles that pop up.
October 2020: Making Contact
I know that this probably seems very sudden, but please believe me when I say that your presence is very important for a special event this Halloween. We have the opportunity to make contact with those on the other side, and we cannot do it without you.
Please come equipped with a candle (and a way to light it), a mirror, salt, and a prized possession. (No dress code although if you want to celebrate the Halloween spirit, feel free… but this is not a silly costume party! We’re conducting serious business!)
Remember: Halloween at 8:00pm ET in my library! Here’s the address: XXXXXXX.
