The City of Palermo is Falling Asleep

Come and play the biggest game of “Palermo Town” of all time! In this classic social game, you’ll transform into one of the town’s 55 inhabitants and experience the whole story in their shoes… all while trying to survive to the end! In this unique experience between theatre and LARP (live action role play), you’re not a spectator, you’re a player. 

Dress code: 1920s. 

This is participatory theatre, which means you won’t watch actors perform the story, but will be part of it yourself. You can only participate as an active player; it’s not possible to “just watch.” You can only see the story through the eyes of one of the characters. 

Audience: adult, children 13+
