Premièring to the world very, very soon, Contrast is a mystery centred around cabaret, live jazz, fairgrounds, acrobatics and illusions.
But it’s no ordinary show! Through the marvels of modern technology, Contrast is coming near you, louder than radio, faster than telegraph and more risqué than Lady Chatterley’s Lover! No more waiting in line for popcorn, no more pushy crowds, no more scalpers, this is the real deal!
This kind of experience ain’t cheap though, folks – there’s a catch. A little girl, Didi, needs some company – she’s a good kid, but she’s got some family troubles and is livin’ in a complicated adult world. She really needs a pal to help her out – and this is where you come in.
You, the mystery audience member, will play Dawn, an enigmatic young lady tasked with helping Didi as she explores the world of Contrast. You will need to use Dawn’s tricks of light and shadow (through clever special effects, you will be able to become your shadow, at will, whenever your shadow appears on a wall!), and summon up all your improvisational skills to move the story along.
