A Little History Play brings together theatre, indie role-playing games, and board game design into three glorious nights of revolution.

Each night, participants form a newly elected government tasked with steering a fledgling nation through uncertain times, reacting to crises and passing laws, knowing full well their actions will reverberate through history.

At the end of one hour, each group will commemorate its reign, leaving a monument for future generations. And on the next night, another group sits down to play, inheriting this world some decades later, to rule for themselves… at least for a while.

Please note that this event will be playing at KXT bAKEHOUSE / Popupstairs on Level 4 of the Kings Cross Hotel, 244 – 248 William St, Kings Cross. The show’s Meeting Point will be in the public bar on Level 1 of the hotel, where you will be greeted by your guide for the evening. Please ensure your arrival is prompt, and if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact the Griffin Box Office on (02) 9361 3817.
