"...thoughtfully explores the phenomenon of gamer culture in a way that will connect to gamer-loving kids as much as it will also connect to their baffled parents... n00b is must see theatre."
– 4 star review, Stephen Hunt, Calgary Herald.
Daniel, a video game prodigy, has crashed his bike and is lost in the woods. He struggles to make sense of what brought him to this place – the fight with his dad, his desire for independence, his quest to meet an online friend. Confused and frightened, he finds himself locked in a struggle between his reality and the exciting fantasy of the video game he loves. Exploring themes of online identity, video game obsession, family conflict, and the anxieties of teenage life is sure to provoke conversation.
Produced by Vertigo Theatre for the Y Stage Theatre Series.
