Scripted

First Person Shooter is a preeminently prophetic play which addresses one of the games industry's contemporary concerns.

"The play’s plot, while complex and deeply-nuanced, boils down to this: two teens in a rural Illinois high school gun down a number of their classmates with brutal efficiency. Within days, it’s revealed that they rehearsed their massacre on a custom game map, and the management of JetPack Games (the developer of the aforementioned software) finds themselves scrambling to deal with their possible role in the school tragedy. What could have quickly turned into a tale of lawsuits and greed gradually unfolds into a believable story of shock, anger, grief, and, ultimately, self-realization."
